Lower East Side


The Lower East Side Tenement Museum tells one of America’s most important stories: how immigrants became American, and how America became a nation. Tour the recreated apartments of this National Historic Landmark at 97 Orchard Street, which was home to over 7,000 immigrants from over 20 nations between 1863 and 1935; take a walk with their guides and explore the Lower East Side then and now; sample immigrant cuisine; and “meet” the residents. The personal stories you hear will offer you a new understanding of life in the past, and what it means to be a new American.
