Join us on summer Thursdays for a new program:
Live! At the Tenement
Thursdays, June 24 – July 29, 2010
6:00, 6:30, and 7:00 PM
Talk to characters who once lived at 97 Orchard Street and see how they made a home in our historic tenement house. You'll meet three interpreted individuals from the Levine (1897), Rogarshevsky (1915), Moore (1869) and Baldizzi (1935) families.
Explore how working-class apartments differ from what you might imagine, and learn how culture and community affected how people lived. How did immigrants make a comfortable home for themselves and their families?
You'll love exploring multiple apartments in the building and interacting with our costumed interpreters, who are talented performers and educators. You'll be amazed at how they transform.
This is a great program for families or anyone whose attention span is too short for a traditional tour (you know who you are!).
Tickets are available through the usual channels: call (866) 606-7232 or visit www.tenement.org. Admission is $20/adults, $15 children/students/seniors (children under 5 are free but need a ticket). You can also buy tickets on the day of the event at our Visitors Center, 108 Orchard Street.
And, stay tuned for details about our Summer Bash on Thursday, July 29, sponsored by Whole Foods!
