Under One Roof Tour

Our brand new exhibit features the stories of the immigrants and migrants who started their lives anew at 103 Orchard Street in the decades after World War II and helped to make the Lower East Side one of New York's most diverse neighborhoods. Hear the stories of former resident Bella Epstein, whose parents survived the Holocaust; Jose and Andy Velez, whose seamstress mother left Puerto Rico for new opportunities; and the Wong siblings, whose mother supported the family by sewing in the Chinatown garment shops. 

3rd Floor of 103 - Accessible via elevator - Recommended Ages 8 and up. 

A Deaf educator will lead the tour, with no spoken English translation. The tour will be an hour and a half long, followed by a reception featuring local Lower East Side foods.

The tours are free but space is limited.

Tickets must be reserved by emailing: ezeira@tenement.org or by calling 1-877-97-LESTM. For further information please visit: http://www.tenement.org/vizinfo_ada.php

Shop Life Tour

Made possible by The David Berg Foundation 
Family-run stores filled the lower level of 97 Orchard for over a century, where they struggled to adapt to an ever-changing neighborhood and achieve the American Dream. Visit the 1870s German saloon of John and Caroline Schneider, and use interactive media to trace the stories of turn-of-the-century kosher butchers, a 1930s auctioneer, and 1970s undergarment discounters. 
Limited Wheelchair Capacity 
Call 1-877-97LESTM in advance for wheelchair tickets. 
Ground floor - Recommended Ages 12 and up.
