Virtual Book Talk: Five Points

Lower East Side Tenement Museum

103 Orchard Street
New York, NY 10002`

Join us on YouTube Live for a free virtual talk with Tyler Anbinder, author of  Five Points: The 19th Century New York City Neighborhood that Invented Tap Dance, Stole Elections, and Became the World’s Most Notorious Slum. Tyler will be joined in conversation by Tenement Museum’s Director of Curatorial Affairs, Dave Favaloro.

Together, they will identify where exactly Five Points was and explore this microcosm of the American immigrant experience. The densely populated neighborhood is said to have witnessed more riots, scams, prostitution, and drunkenness than any other neighborhood in America. While at the same time, it brimmed with creative energy, home to theaters, dance halls, and boxing matches, and political clubs. Dave will delve into some of the museum’s stories with Tyler as they explore this unique neighborhood.
