Your Story, Our Story: Gloria's Story
Gloria talks about her family's history with immigration and connection to New York City.
The Tenement Museum celebrates the stories that define and strengthen what it means to be American. They share stories of the immigrant and migrant experience through immersive guided tours, educational content and programs, and thought leadership, with one important goal — to advance the understanding of immigration and to highlight its role in the ongoing creation of our nation.
Visitors explore stories of migration and immigration through guided tours of two tenement buildings at 97 and 103 Orchard Street and the Lower East Side. These immersive trips back in time let visitors explore identity, public policy, urban development, architecture, and more through the true stories of the families who lived in these iconic buildings.
Explore the history of New York's Lower East Side on a guided tour, visit a preserved tenement apartment, or sign up for one of the Museum's upcoming events.
