Tenement Bedrooms

event

Tour our historic tenement for an intimate look at the most private space of a home: the bedroom. From sex to childbirth, and everything in between, the bedroom was the smallest room in the apartment, but also raises the most interesting questions. Why call a midwife instead of a doctor? What type of birth control did women have access to in the late nineteenth century? Which former tenant of 97 Orchard investigated prostitution? See how ideas around women’s health and women’s bodies changed over time and how that influenced the immigrant families of the Lower East Side.
