YOU can help preserve history!

The Tenement Museum needs your help! The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, which tells the stories of our immigrant ancestors, is currently in contention to win a major grant from Partners in Preservation, which would fund stabilization and conservation work on many of the spaces in the historic 163-year-old tenement at 97 Orchard Street. Winning this grant is based on the outcome of a popular vote, and YOU can help! You can vote once every day between now and May 21, either at the Partners in Preservation website (requires registration, but it's free and easy!) or on the Partners in Preservation Facebook page (requires a Facebook account).

For some great reasons to vote to help preserve 163 years of history at the Tenement Museum, here's a great video with some of our dedicated staff:
