** Field Trip Details
At the Tenement Museum (on the Lower East Side) students will have the opportunity to participate in one of its living history programs, where costumed interpreters bring past residents of 97 Orchard Street to life. Our group is scheduled to ‘meet’ a 14-year-old immigrant girl called Victoria Confino. She will answer questions about the immigrant experience in 1916, for example, what was it like to start a new life in New York one hundred years ago? What challenges did new arrivals face as they prepared to settle here?
