Visitors will participate in an orientation session using tactile models of our historic tenement as well as architectural features before going on a tour that will include touch objects, braille materials, and verbal description. The tour will be an hour and a half long, followed by a reception featuring local Lower East Side foods.
Drop in on 14-year-old Victoria Confino, who lived in the tenement in 1916, to hear about the immigrant experience in a more intimate setting. Tour her apartment, ask her questions about her life, and get a unique perspective on adjusting to life on the Lower East Side.
