The Lower East Side Tenement Museum in NY is located at 97 Orchard, which was home to nearly 7,000 working class immigrants from over 20 nations from 1863 to 1935. The museum site houses photographs and even a RPG enabling website visitors to take on the role of a recent immigrant, choosing a name, a job, and more, all guided by an actress portraying Victoria Cofino, who lived at 97 Orchard in the early part of the twentieth century.
Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together, from across different generations, cultures and places, to share small glimpses of the past and to build up the huge story of human history.
Everyone has history to share: whether its sitting in yellowed albums in the attic, collected in piles of crackly tapes, conserved in the 1000s of archives all over the world or passed down in memories and old stories.
Each of these pieces of history finds a home on Historypin, where everyone has the chance to see it, add to it, learn from it, debate it and use it to build up a more complete understanding of the world.
