News and Virtual Tours from New York during COVID-19

03/29/2020




You stay at home, and we'll do the same, and together we can "experience" New York City virtually. We'll bring the news over to you and share any interesting information from the Big Apple including any new virtual tours/visits that you can take from the safety (and comfort) of your own home!

Some Virtual Tours and Experiences that recently launched include walking down the streets of NYC to discover some Street Art, enter the most important museums, listen to concerts and classical music, or maybe have fun and keep yourself informed and updated with our very own Irene and her NEW YouTube CHANNEL
But let's see some of these Virtual Experiences together:

The Great Depression 1929 - Immigration - COVID-19

Three different topics, different historical periods but many similarities. At #97 of Orchard Street, we find the Tenement Museum (the historic tenement house that has become a museum), we are in the Lower East Side. It tells the story of immigration and the life of those who lived there during the Great Depression. Guess who lived there from 1928 to 1935? As soon as the Museum reopens, we will do a Live Tour on our Facebook page ... for now, you can read its History from 1864.
