Event description

Description

Join us for a guided tour at the Tenement Musuem!

Relive the stories of immigrant workers who chased the American Dream. If you're wondering why this would be interesting, in the years 1863-2011 many people lived in what we now call tenements (also called tenement houses, urban dwellings occupied by impoverished families. They are apartment houses that barely meet or fail to meet the minimum standards of safety, sanitation, and comfort). These two historical tenement buildings housed an estimated 15,000 people, from over 20 nations.

Space is limited, sign up today! Free for attendees (donations to the museum are encouraged). Meeting point for the tour is inside the museum's bookstore!
