Storyteller’s Society members—and a guest—are invited to attend a special food tour on Saturday, March 25th! Visit the 1930s home of Adolpho and Rosaria Baldizzi, immigrants from Sicily who lived at 97 Orchard Street with their children, Josephine and Johnny. Afterward, visit Essex Market, a Lower East Side institution since 1940. Learn about the history of the market, meet the owners and taste samples from Mille Nonne, visit the Tenement Museum’s pop-up exhibit highlighting the food stories from our collection, Your Story, Our Story, and mingle with other Storytellers.
