Join us TOMORROW for the final part of our Tenement Talk miniseries: THREE HISTORIANS WALK INTO A SALOON. We'll discuss the Johnson-Reed Act of 1924, the most comprehensive immigration restriction to date and the first immigration law to explicitly exclude Europeans. Between 1880 and 1924, 23 million immigrants entered the country, and New York’s population jumped from 1 million to over 5 million. The primary sources of immigration to NYC were Italy and Russia. But in 1921 and 1924, Congress established national origin quotas, ending an era of immigration.

After a year-long project to preserve our national historic landmark tenement, our doors are back open and our lights are back on at 97 Orchard Street. Each day we welcome hundreds of visitors, including K-12 students, to explore the stories of diverse families who came to the Lower East Side to create new lives and helped build our city and our country.

These tenement stories help us connect the past to the present and build knowledge and empathy on Orchard Street and beyond. This vital and important work is only made possible with support from friends like you.

Join us on November 30 for a compelling discussion about the Johnson-Reed Act of 1924, a pivotal moment in immigration history. This landmark act marked the most comprehensive immigration restriction to date and was the first to explicitly exclude Europeans from entering the United States.

Professor Mae Ngai will delve into the long-term legal repercussions of this act and engage in a thought-provoking conversation with Eric Goldstein and Maddalena Marinari. Together, they will explore the law's profound impact on Eastern European Jewish and Italian immigrants living in New York's tenements. What consequences did this law have on immigrants already in the country, and what did it signify about who could be considered an American?

Don't miss this insightful exploration of a critical chapter in our immigration history! https://www.tenement.org/events/virtual-tenement-talk-three-historians-walk-into-a-saloon-1924/

Do you know the Know-Nothings?

The Know Nothings were a rising political party in the US in the 1850s and a lesser-known chapter of history we’ll be highlighting in next week’s virtual Tenement Talk, Three Historians Walk into a Saloon: 1882.

They originally started as a secret society of nativists, known as the Order of the Star-Spangled Banner, believing in the need to protect the interests of native-born citizens by heavily restricting immigration. When asked by outsiders, members of the OSSB were supposed to answer, “I know nothing”, hence the group’s popular nickname. As their numbers grew, the Know-Nothings officially burst onto the political stage as the American Party, campaigning a platform exclusively concerned with anti-immigrant policy. They called for restrictions on immigration, barring foreign-born voters and politicians, and a 25-year wait time before immigrants could become citizens.

With 43 elected Congressmen in 1855, the Know-Nothings, at its peak, was a formidable third party. However, its single-issue ideology and neutrality against the proslavery Democrats and antislavery Republicans proved to be its downfall. The party eventually split as the debate over slavery took precedence and disappeared into obscurity altogether as the Civil War broke out.

But nativism never left and has influenced American politics ever since.

Explore the legacy of the Know-Nothings with us on November 9 for this week's Tenement Talk - THREE HISTORIANS WALK INTO A SALOON: 1882, a discussion on the rising anti-immigrant sentiment of the 19th century and the evolution of immigration policy.

Happy Birthday to our friend, Lady Liberty! in 1886, the Statue of Liberty was officially unveiled in New York Harbor. Resting beside Ellis Island, it was visible to the many incoming immigrants, symbolizing both an end to their arduous journey and the beginning of their new lives in America. We are joining The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. the non-profit dedicated to restoring and preserving the Statue of Liberty, to celebrate her special day!

Join us on November 9 on YouTube Live for a thought-provoking discussion on the rising anti-immigrant sentiment of the 19th century.

In 1855, a significant turning point occurred as New York City became a majority-immigrant city for the first time, with Irish and German immigrants leading the way. While immigration and economic growth propelled NYC into a global metropolis, not everyone embraced the newcomers.
Renowned historian Tyler Anbinder will join Professor Ngai and Tenement Museum President Annie Polland for a conversation on exclusion and inclusion, discrimination and prejudice, and their impact on immigrants and migrants.

With 97 Orchard Street now finally reopened, it's time for a special sneak peek into the development of our upcoming permanent apartment exhibit and tour, A Union of Hope: 1869, set to open on December 15th! Our Curatorial Department has been busy curating an array of new collection items to illuminate the Moore family's story, like this antique foot warmer.

The center drawer of this artifact was designed to hold glowing coals gathered from stoves at home, warming the copper plate footrest. After working as a waiter, Joseph Moore became a coachman, driving people via horse and carriage through the city. During the bitter winter months, a foot warmer like this became an invaluable companion to Joseph and his fellow coachmen.

We look forward to sharing more exclusive updates and experiences with you as we ramp up for the grand opening of A Union of Hope: 1869!

During the early restoration of our historic tenement at 97 Orchard Street, we uncovered a treasure trove of handbills advertising the remarkable services of Professor Dora Meltzer. Operating her business right from her apartment within the building, Dora was known as "an unexcelled Palmist" and mind reader, offering insights into the past, present, and future for just 15 cents.

✨ Brand New Tour Alert! ✨

Step back in time to visit the recreated homes of the Rogarshevskys and the Baldizzis – a Jewish family and an Italian family who became neighbors at 97 Orchard Street in the early 20th century, a pivotal era in American history. At a time when New York City and the nation witnessed an influx of newcomers like never before, debates raged among politicians and everyday folks regarding the government's responsibilities in housing and workplaces amidst the challenging conditions of tenement districts and factories.

Through stories of shared meals, acts of neighborly kindness, and advice on immigration status, we'll peel back the layers of history and delve into how families like the Baldizzis and Rogarshevskys navigated this complex period on the Lower East Side.

10/03/2023

in 1965, a monumental milestone in immigration history was reached with the passage of the Hart-Celler Act, also known as The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965. This transformative act brought about a seismic shift by implementing new and more equitable quotas on immigration from countries that had long been burdened by restrictive immigration laws like the National Origins Act (Johnson-Reed, 1924) and the Chinese Exclusion Act (1882). A year earlier, as part of his Great Society domestic programs, Johnson had signed the Civil Rights Act outlawing discrimination on the basis of race, religion, s*x, and national origin.The passing of the Hart-Celler Act and abolishing the national origins system and its foundations of race-based restriction, Johnson reasoned, would correct “a cruel and enduring wrong in the conduct of the American nation.”

In our new interactive blog, we're asking your opinion on the age-old question: Wallpaper or Paint? We took advantage during our recent year-long preservation at 97 Orchard Street to examine what the building — and our ongoing research into its 160-year-old history — had to say about whether our exhibits might need some updates.

We zeroed in on the Gumpertz apartment, one of the Museum's very first apartments recreated in the early 90s. Specifically, we looked at the wallpaper in their parlor – which might not be accurate to when the Gumpertz actually lived in 97 Orchard Street. So the question was, should we keep the wallpaper or remove it? If you were the Tenement Museum, what would you do?

“The Tenement Museum is not a fixed entity. It’s constantly changing, there’s constantly new information. There are still questions that we have about the building and the way people lived in the building and there are always new discoveries being made. In fact, I would argue that the most imp...

97 Orchard Street is almost fully reopen for tours, but what else is going on in there? We've been working on the basement of 97 Orchard Street — the site of our new climate-controlled collection storage unit. Century-old museum artifacts require very specific environmental parameters to protect against high temperatures and humidity. .

While digging drainage ditches, we unearthed some mystery objects in the building's 160-year-old foundation. Check them out on our latest blog, Foundation Finds! https://www.tenement.org/blog/foundation-finds/

There’s still time to visit the Abrons Arts Center for their latest exhibition, Objects of Permanence, on view until September 14! This show spotlights the Lower East Side as a pioneering capital of the garment industry in the mid-20th century, highlighting the rich histories of the Puerto Rican and other migrant community labor forces in New York City. Curated by Mellány Sánchez and inspired by our Saez Velez family story, the installation also features items from our collection and memorabilia from local community collaborators.
Last Friday, we spoke with Mellány Sánchez, Dr. Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Jessica Gonsalves, co-owner of Lower East Side vintage store Procell on how and why we form collections and the role of garments in community storytelling.

Every year, we celebrate Labor Day to honor the generations of laborers who came before us – who persisted in the fight to defend workers’ rights and established landmark legislation that protected them.

Every day at the Tenement Museum, we share stories that span decades of political and human rights progress and celebrate the ordinary people who shaped and were shaped by pivotal moments in American history.

Commemorate Labor Day with us and stories that connect us to the history and the lasting impact of the ongoing labor movement.

📸: 1909 Shirtwaist Strikers, from the Library of Congress. In the early 20th century, immigrant women working in the city’s growing garment industry organized into early unions to challenge unsafe conditions and unfair practices. The wages they earned allowed them to enter mass consumer culture, empowering them to help shape working-class fashion and popular culture.

Victoria Confino is just your average teenage girl. She has her friends (and maybe a crush or two). She helps her parents out while still finding time to have fun at the movies or around the neighborhood. She's trying to figure out what her future holds. She has to deal with a lot of siblings and a total lack of privacy.

But Victoria is also a teenage immigrant, a Sephardic Jew who fled her war-torn country of Kastoría (today's Greece) in 1913 and grew up in 97 Orchard Street in New York City. Despite that, she still experienced a lot of the ups and downs of adolescence that are familiar to this day. How might you and Victoria be alike, and how might you differ? You can ask her yourself on our costumed interpreter tour, MEET VICTORIA! Tickets available now.

First, visit with the Schneiders, who ran their lager beer saloon in the 1870s when the Lower East Side was known as "Little Germany." Then, you’ll travel forward in time to the Great Depression, where you’ll learn how Max Marcus made a living in an interactive multimedia exhibit in the space that once held his auction house. Discover how these small businesses aided their communities, and how they adapted to the changing neighborhood. Tickets are available now at tenement.org!

Ever wonder what happened to your beloved childhood toy? Try checking under the floorboards! These two, possibly dating from around the turn of the 20th century, were recently found on the 5th floor of 97 Orchard under a kitchen floor. The doll is handmade and filled with straw, with the outside burlap likely repurposed from a food bag found around the house. The porcelain figurine was found nearby. If you think these might look a little creepy - just imagine a curator in a hundred years finding a Furby beneath someone's kitchen floor 🫣

Do you remember your favorite toy from childhood?

Check out our latest find! We recently found this beautiful wedding invitation on the fifth floor of 97 Orchard Street during our ongoing preservation project. According to this invite, Zlota Rissin and Nachshen Judashkin were due to be wed on March 2, 1907. One curious thing to note is the location of the celebration – the top floor of the bride’s residence on Market Street. Most likely, though, this didn’t mean that the family had the entire upper floor of a tenement building to themselves. Before the days of party rental spaces, neighbors would often open their homes up to accommodate all the guests who would come together to celebrate big events.
