Visit the recreated tenement homes of the Gumpertz and Wong families, who lived on the same block of Orchard Street in the 1870s and the 1970s. Natalie Gumpertz, who arrived from Germany, and Mrs. Wong, from China, were both immigrant mothers who worked in the garment industry, separated by a century. Explore their lives and their communities, and how immigration laws impacted both families in different ways. On this interactive tour, you’ll consider immigrant women’s roles in their families, and how ideas of American identity and citizenship created different trajectories for Chinese and German immigrants.
