  1. “This museum seeks to educate about 19th and early 20th century immigrants and even has replicated apartments to demonstrate how they lived.”

  2. “I wouldn't call it a "Must Do" but that was the best category for it. It's a fascinating look at life for immigrants in this part of town that was "more crowded than Calcutta" during the hey day of factory workers in NYCity. It's very educational and gives great perspective to the quality of life we have today.www.tenement.org”

  5. “This is a "must do" museum. It's an old tenement building in the lower East Side that operated from the 1860s until the 1930s, when it was sealed up and left intact until rediscovered over 50 years later. You see exactly how poor immigrants lived as that time evolved. It's one of the best museums I've ever visited.”
