In this live, interactive tour, you’ll have opportunity to ask questions and comment as we visit their tenement apartment to understand daily life and discuss the Moore’s experiences as Irish New Yorkers. How were they making an Irish home in the heart of the ‘Little Germany’ neighborhood? What discrimination might they have faced, what opportunities did they have as Irish immigrants, and how do their stories help us understand our present day?
