Tenement_museum.jpgAlthough it kicked off last fall, I’ve only recently become aware of the Tenement Museum’s blog, which, like the museum itself, promises to be a great resource for New York history — especially as it relates to immigrants and the LES (the blog seems to focus a lot of attention on immigrant and neighborhood foodways in particular). I’ll be sure to add it to my daily reads.

Check out this recent post on foodstuff discovered while doing repair work on the 97 Orchard tenement, the museum’s centerpiece.
