Virtual Tour: Baldizzi Family, 1930s
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Visit the 1930s home of Adolpho and Rosaria Baldizzi, immigrants from Sicily who live at 97 Orchard Street with their children, Josephine and Johnny. As we did on our “Hard Times” building tour, we’ll explore their daily lives and experiences as immigrants living through the Great Depression. How did they manage economic struggles? What supports did they have from community and government programs, and what lessons can we draw from their story for our lives today?
When: Tuesday, October 27, 11:00am – 12:00 pm ET
Where: Zoom – register HERE: https://www.tenement.org/events/virtual-tour-baldizzi-oct27/
