103 Orchard Street Website

Implementation of a web-based virtual tour and public programs at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum that examine post-World War II immigration through the experiences of three families that resided at 103 Orchard Street from the 1950s through the 1980s.

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, a leading cultural institution dedicated to exploring America's immigrant heritage, requests a $400,000 Implementation Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to allow it to develop a website exhibit and series of public programs on post-World War II immigration. This project will also provide the intellectual underpinnings for the subsequent installation of exhibits in three bricks-and-mortar exhibits. The principal deliverable of this project will be the engaging, interactive, and multi-layered 103 Orchard Street Website. As an innovative element in introducing its audience to the history of contemporary immigration, and as a key feature of that longer-term project, the website-based virtual tour will highlight the perspectives of three families who lived at 103 Orchard Street. Taken collectively, these families' separate narratives will underscore broader humanities themes.
