Tenement Apartment Tours

Finding Home

Visit the tenement homes of the Epstein and Saez Velez families in the 1950s and 1960s. The families shared a tenement building at 103 Orchard Street, and shared a changing Lower East Side, yet had very different experiences as Jewish Holocaust survivors and Puerto Rican migrants. What was it like to live in a neighborhood becoming more racially and culturally diverse and how did newly arrived families find a sense of belonging? Visitors will explore these questions through the memories of the families and the historical context of the mid-20th Century while touring their recreated homes.

Catch a SNEAK PEEK of the Epstein apartment through Bella’s nostalgic return to her childhood home after many years.
