Lower East Side Tenement Museum National Historic Site

National Park Service, New York.

The heart of the museum is a historic tenement, home to an estimated 7,000 people from over 20 nations between 1863 and 1935. The tenement’s cramped living spaces, the lives of past residents and the history of the Lower East Side, contribute to its representation of the immigrant experience. Throughout the year, programs such as walking tours and readings are offered.


Directions

Located on the corner of Delancey Street, the Visitor Center and Museum Shop is where tours start and end, and where tickets are sold.
