A deaf educator will lead the tour, with no spoken English translation. Each tour is an hour and a half long, followed by a reception featuring local Lower East Side foods. Shop Life Made possible by The David Berg Foundation Family-run stores filled the lower level of 97 Orchard for over a century, where they struggled to adapt to an ever-changing neighborhood and achieve the American Dream. Visit the 1870s German saloon of John and Caroline Schneider, and use interactive media to trace the stories of turn-of-the-century kosher butchers, a 1930s auctioneer, and 1970s undergarment discounters.
