The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is a beloved institution with a large number of visitors that exceeds the number of people the building was originally designed to accommodate when inhabited as a residence.

This, with age, has had a major effect on the building structure and interior finishes, requiring the museum to undertake significant work to help balance the overlapping goals of preservation and interpretation, resulting in major structural repairs at 97 Orchard Street.

As part of these repairs, upgrades to utilities, including a new HVAC system, exterior repairs, and the installation of replacement windows were made. Difficult but necessary decisions were made as the work was designed and performed. This is a restoration and conservation tour providing an inside look at the work performed, and a discussion of the choices made.

The tour will be led by Alex Gaylord, Director of Executive Projects, and David Favaloro, Senior Director of Curatorial Affairs and Hebrew Technical Institute Research Fellow, along with Mary Jablonski, (President and Founder) and Stephanie M. Hoagland (Principal and Senior Conservator) from Jablonski Building Conservation.
