Tenement Kitchens
Lower East Side Tenement Museum | 103 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002

For many Lower East Side women in the 19th Century, feeding the family was a daily struggle: scraping together money, scouring markets, and cooking dinner in apartments without running water, electricity or refrigeration. Explore the apartments of three different 97 Orchard families to learn the important role that the kitchen played as the heart of the home. Visitors will see, smell, and finally taste the foods of the tenements.
