Virtual Visit: Joseph and Rachel Moore’s Apartment


Check out the Tenement Museum’s newest recreated apartment in an intimate visit to Joseph and Rachel Moore’s tenement home!

Joseph and Rachel Moore were Black New Yorkers who lived in a rear tenement in today’s Soho in the 1860s, and shared their apartment with an adult daughter and two roommates, Irish immigrant Rose Brown and her multiracial son, Louis Munday.
