Autumn in New York. There’s a reason why there’s a song about it, sung by the likes of Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, and Ella Fitzgerald. Autumn in New York is inviting, it’s glittering. It makes us feel — we’re home.
After months of being stuck indoors, we’re all looking for opportunities to spend some time outside, to watch the leaves change, to feel their air crisp and cool around us. Each season brings even life-long New Yorkers the opportunity to rediscover the city they love.
So, if you find yourself out walking more, enjoying that crisp weather, you might as well learn something while doing it. The Tenement Museum is offering private, single-household Walking Tours every Saturday this fall, exploring the often-overlooked and forgotten parts of this iconic immigrant neighborhood.
