Discover how Irish immigrants handled discrimination in the 19th century, and what opportunities they might have received in Lower Manhattan. Travel back to 1860s New York to visit Joseph and Bridget Moore, Irish immigrants living with their children at 97 Orchard Street. As on our Irish Outsiders building tour, we’ll visit their tenement apartment to understand daily life and discuss the Moore’s experiences as Irish New Yorkers. How were they making an Irish home in the heart of the ‘Little Germany’ neighborhood?
