Tenement Museum Store
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
