Visit the 1930s home of Adolpho and Rosaria Baldizzi, immigrants from Sicily who live at 97 Orchard Street with their children, Josephine and Johnny. We’ll explore their daily lives and experiences as immigrants living through the Great Depression. How did they manage economic struggles? What supports did they have from community and government programs, and what lessons can we draw from their story for our lives today?

*For Tenement Museum Members, please email lestm@tenement.org to set up your reservation.
