New York: Lower East Side Tenement Museum
Immigration has built America, which was populated by people by every country. Arriving by sea, they passed through Ellis Island and beneath the Statue of Liberty: the first thing they saw was this symbol of emancipation that told them they had just reached the land of the American dream. But where did all of these immigrants end up? To find out you must visit the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
The Tenement Museum is found in one of Manhattan’s districts and is a National Historic Site. It’s an enormous brick home that has been the house to more than 7,000 people from 20 different nations from 1863 to 1935.
The museum contains objects that belonged to the residents, other than promoting tolerance for cultural diversity and giving a historical prospective on immigration.
