6. Learn About Irish Immigrants at the Tenement Museum

Tenement Museum

The Tenement Museum will host a virtual talk on Thursday evening that celebrates both Irish American History and Women’s History by exploring the story of Bridget Moore. Bridget and her husband Joseph Moore were Irish immigrants who lived at 97 Orchard Street in the 1860s with their children.

In hearing the Moores’ story, you’ll discover how Irish immigrants navigated a diverse city, maintained pride, and built a community in Lower Manhattan. The virtual presentation will be hosted on Zoom and is free to attend but a donation is suggested. Register here!
