A Model Visitor

Over the summer, a crew shooting photos for the Bloomingdale's fall catalog came through the Lower East Side. One of their stops was the Tenement Museum Shop and Visitor Center at 108 Orchard. This very tall model made like she was browsing books and postcards. It was pretty impressive - they managed to get their shots in about 30 minutes, all while regular Museum visitors were buying tickets and doing their own book browsing. She actually looks like the sort of Lower East Side girl who would be into our Joli jewelry or the photography art books.

See more of their Lower East Side adventures in the catalog, which I'm sure you can pick up at Bloomingdale's.


  1. Yes, a 6' woman would love living in a 19th century tenement. Are you kidding me?

  2. We meant that she looks like some of the people who shop at our shop, not like someone who lived in our building.
