The Tenement Museum’s Treasury of Stories

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

There isn’t a better story than history itself: relatable characters, a well-crafted story, and one hopes, truth.

As the old but good saying goes, a picture is worth 1,000 words (or about 166 Six-Word Memoirs), which is why we’re loving the Lower East Side Tenement Museum’s new online database of historical images. The Tenement Museum, a historical tenement building on 97 Orchard Street in New York City, has housed over 7,000 immigrants in a neighborhood that (until recent history’s hipster invasion), has been home to the poor and working class. The Tenement’s new online archive showcases over 1,300 photos of 97 Orchard Street and the people that lived there. The images are fully accessible and searchable, offering a rich history of the NYC’s Lower East Side.
