Estella Retailer: The Iconic New York City Tenement Museum

Estella is thrilled to be a part of New York City’s iconic Tenement Museum Shop.  The Museum shop has long retailed Estella’s New York themed baby gifts including its organic baby toys, clothes & nursery decor pillows.

About the Tenement Museum

In a time when immigration is hotly debated, the Tenement Museum was founded almost 30 years ago to honor immigrants.  Founded by Ruth Abram and Anita Jacobson, the Tenement Museum showcases one of the first houses in the United States for immigrant families.  Located on 97 Orchard Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, these very humble multi family dwellings show how these first immigrants lived.

97 Orchard Street, Tenement Dwellings

 

Built in 1893, the tenement was home to about 7000 immigrants.  Today the Museum conducts guided tours of the dwellings showing how families lived in the early 19th and 20th Centuries.  The tours forge an emotional connection between the visitors and the early immigrants by walking guests through their living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and their home life.  This mini history lesson continues outside the tenement on Orchard Street and goes around the neighbourhood describing how these immigrants lived outside of their homes in the neighbourhood and how the area has changed over the years.  This fascinating tour is taken by about 44,000 students annually and is a must for any NY history buffs or for anyone seeking to better understand the life of our earliest immigrants.

Museum Store

The Museum gift store offers a select collection of New York themed gifts for adults and children – books, jewelry, personal and office accessories.  Their baby gifts include Estella’s organic baby rattles, bodysuits and much more.

Based in New York City, Estella is thrilled to be a part of the Tenement Museum and encourage you to visit and support this wonderful not for profit organisation.

Summer 2017 Exhibit

In April 2017, the Tenement Museum will showcase the personal stories of immigrants who lived in the Tenement after World War II.  Former residents will tell their stories about the housing and the neighbourhood and shed light on how the Lower East Side became so diverse.  The stories include those of the son of Holocaust survivors, Puerto Rican and Chinese immigrant families.  Again these personal reflections will put faces to the immigrants who first settled in this vibrant New York City neighbourhood.
