The Lower East Side has come a long way since the early 20th century, when immigrant families striving for a better life were crammed into tenement buildings like this one. Rather than gloss over the area's unsavory history, the Tenement Museum preserves it, aiming to educate visitors about what life was like back then. Visitors must reserve a spot on a guided tour in order to visit the museum.
