Free Virtual Visit to Henry Street & Museum at Eldridge Street:

Wednesday, May 27, 2020, at 2:00 pm

RSVP at  henrystreet.org/virtualvisit
 
Where can new immigrants turn for help? Where do they find community? What safety nets are available in times of need?

For millions of immigrants arriving to the Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th century, they found themselves asking these same questions. Neighborhood institutions offered an array of resources, advice, and communal support to newcomers navigating their new lives in America.

Join us for a virtual visit to the Lower East Side! First we’ll take a peek inside the breathtaking main sanctuary at the  Museum at Eldridge Street and learn more about the community who worshipped there. Then we’ll tour the Henry Street Settlement to learn about the pioneering work of Nurse Lillian Wald and the support she provided to the community during the Progressive Era. 

*Designed for students in grades 4-8 and their families.
