[WATCH] Tenement Museum Celebrates 30 Years on the Lower East Side

30 years ago, the Tenement Museum was established to tell the stories of immigrants who started their lives on Manhattan's Lower East Side between the 19th and 21st centuries. Now, through the recreated apartment and businesses of real families in two historic tenement buildings, the museum is the best way to learn more about immigration in America, through New York City's Lower East Side.

In this week's featured video you'll hear from Museum Co-Founder, Ruth Abram, current Museum President, Kevin Jennings, and a number of Museum staff discussing the Museum's evolution and what continues to make the Tenement Museum and its work so vital.
