Lower East Side Tenement Museum

December 7, 2009
A recent photo of my apartment.

Why would I want to take a tour of where poor people lived?
I know this is a website about mansions, but I would be remiss if I didn’t include some other historical sites.  The Tenement Museum An entire brownstone on the Lower East Side that’s been gussied up to look like a tenement from the early 20th century.  It’s one block away from Congee Village (dumplings!) and a couple doors down from where Gus’ Pickles used to sell their amazing half dills out of barrels.
