Meeting place: Old St. Patrick’s Church (Mott Street Entrance btw Prince and Houston Streets) In this special walking tour, we’ll explore the world of Irish immigrants, who flooded into New York City in the 19th century to escape famine and hardship in Ireland; in 1855, approximately 24,000 Irish immigrants worked as servants for wealthy families like the Tredwells. We’ll explore the world of these immigrants and see sites associated with a servant’s life outside the walls of her employer’s home. Tour is one hour and begins promptly at 12:30 p.m. Promenaders will return to the Museum in time to take the 2 p.m. Guided Tour if they wish.
