Tenement Museum - Tour in ASL (no voice interpretation)

06/11/2019 6:00 pm

 

ASL Shop Life Tour

Immigrant-owned small businesses are often seen as a pathway to the “American dream.” Over the years, 97 Orchard Street has been home to many storefronts and businesses, and Shop Life shares the stories of these immigrant entrepreneurs. Visit a recreated lager beer saloon from the late 1800s and learn about the family that owned and operated the business while living in a tenement apartment behind it. Shop Life also visits the space once occupied by an auction house and explores the stories of 97 Orchard Street businesses in an interactive, multimedia exhibit. Discover how commercial life connects communities, creates opportunity, and links past to present.

A deaf educator will lead a 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.
