This weekend our educators test their acting chops (and Irish/Yiddish accents) as they take on the roles of former residents in very cool & very special Tenement Museum tour.
On "Making a Home in 97 Orchard Street," visitors will play newspaper reporters assigned to cover tenement living conditions. They'll bounce from 1869, where Irish immigrant Bridget Moore discusses keeping her house clean, to 1897, where garment shop owner and Polish immigrant Harris Levine explains how his family lives and works in the same 360 square foot space. In 1918, Fanny Rogarshevsky dishes on her dishes, while Adolpho Baldizzi talks about how tough it is for their family to make a nice home for themselves in the midst of the Great Depression.
This is a truly fun program and a great opportunity to see multiple apartments inside 97 Orchard Street. For more info, click here! Tickets are available at tenement.org and we recommend buying them in advance.
