Lower East Side Tenement Museum (New York, NY 10002-3102)
Stephen Long (Project Director: 05/16/2007 to present)

Rehousing the Tenement Museum's Archival Collections

Purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies to rehouse manuscripts, archives, photographs, and audio and video materials that illustrate life in Lower East Side, New York, tenement houses during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum (The Tenement Museum) requests support for the rehousing of its archival collections in a new, climate-controlled space. This project will support the purchase of 12 new Metro mobile shelving units and new acid- and lignin-free folders and archival flip-top cases and cartons. The Tenement Museum's archival collection is used for research by outside scholars more than any other materials in its collection.
