Tenement Podcast: Businesses of the Lower East Side

At the Tenement Museum, we like to share what we know about the immigrant experience and the history of the Lower East Side any way we can. Whether by building tours, neighborhoods tours, Tenement Talks, or right here through the blog, we want people to engage and talk to us in any way that's convenient for them. That's why, starting today, we're launching the Lower East Side Tenement Museum Podcast.

We have a bunch of episodes lined up featuring interviews with our staff, sneak previews of what we're working on, and interesting tidbits about 97 Orchard Street and the LES. Plus, soon you'll be able to subscribe to the podcasts on iTunes so you never miss an episode.

Episode One features Part 1 of my interview with Curatorial Director and Research Manager Dave Favaloro discussing the history of LES businesses and how we're integrating it into our restored tenement building at 97 Orchard.

Check it out below and stay tuned for Part 2, plus a lot of other cool stuff to come.
