Lower East Side Tenement Museum

Recommended
Tour guides interpret several generations of immigrant life at 97 Orchard Street, a five-story tenement building (now a National Historic Landmark) that housed, between 1863 and 1935, some 7,000 people here in the heart of what was once the most densely populated neighborhood in the US. Five different tours present life for the various occupants at different times in the building's history.
