Virtual Tour: Moore Family, 1860s
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Travel back to 1860s New York to visit Joseph and Bridget Moore, Irish immigrants living with their children at 97 Orchard Street. As on our Irish Outsiders building tour, we’ll visit their tenement apartment to understand daily life and discuss the Moore’s experiences as Irish New Yorkers. How were they making an Irish home in the heart of the ‘Little Germany’ neighborhood? What discrimination might they have faced, and what opportunities did they have as Irish immigrants?
Venue: Tenement Museum
103 Orchard St
