The Tenement Museum, New York

Glasgow is well known as a city of tenements and fittingly has its own 19th century Tenement House Museum. Its grittier New York equivalent is the Tenement Museum, an 1863 building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a flavour of which can be gained from its website. The ‘history’ section is particularly interesting, with oral histories from tenement dwellers, photographs, archival documents and other artifacts.
