ASL Hard Times Tour

Explore how immigrants coped with economic hardship through the stories of the Gumpertz family and the Baldizzi family. Hear how these two families, living in different centuries, shared similar struggles, hopes, and survival strategies as they worked to create new lives in America. Visit the recreated homes of the Gumpertz family, whose primary breadwinner disappeared during the Panic of 1873, and the Baldizzi family, who persevered through the Great Depression.

2nd Floor | Recommended Ages 8 and up.

A Deaf educator will lead a tour, with no spoken English translation. The tour will be hour-and-a-half long, followed by a reception featuring local Lower East Side foods.
