Tenement Apartment Tours, Meet the Residents

Meet Victoria

Journey back in time to 1916 for an immersive experience with an actor playing Victoria Confino, a real teenager who immigrated to the United States in 1913. You’ll meet Victoria in her family’s recreated tenement apartment exhibit inside the Manny Cantor Center and get to ask Victoria questions and hear stories about her home in Greece, her journey to the United States, and her experiences as an immigrant in the Lower East Side of 1916. Recommended for visitors of all ages.

As part of the 97 Orchard Street preservation project, this exhibit has been temporarily moved to the Educational Alliance’s Manny Cantor Center, a historic social services organization formed in 1889.
