Tenement Museum Store

Map & Directions 108 Orchard St.
New York, NY 10002


Village Voice's Description

The LES Tenement Museum has a small, highly edited selection of books, which slip into simple ethnic categories (Italian, Jewish, Asian and more). A respectful tour through the preserved apartments of the Rogarshevskyas and Gumpertz and an anonymous seamstress from Poland, will whip you into the mood for titles like When I was Puerto Rican

, Whoas Irish?

and, of course, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

    The gift shop is one of my favorite stores in NYC. So many great books.

  • About 7,000 people, mostly immigrants, lived in this five-story building from 1863 to 1935. Tours trace the lives of five typical families. - Green Guide Editor

  • New York Habitat on 10/11/11

    A great place to gain an understanding of how New York City came to be. The Tenement Museum is an eye opening experience as it takes you through actual families lives of those who lived there.
