  • Amenities
  • The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is a portrait of immigrant life in 19th- and early 20th-century New York City on 97 Orchard Street. The museum used to house thousands of working class folks, but it is now a portal into the past. After being abandoned for more than 50 years, this tenement time capsule was revived. With its apartments expertly restored and re-created using everything from personal letters and journals to crime-scene photos and death certificates, the museum brings the building's history back to life. A Path Through History attraction.
