Take to the streets on this neighborhood walking tour and discover where these immigrant girls lived, shopped, prayed, played and went to school. Admission is $15 per family.

    OMG!!!!!!! Is it crazy to think that I can make it to one of the tours in August just a few weeks after moving to the East Coast??? I can’t imagine missing this opportunity. And we are just finishing the first book. (Together, that is; I’ve been an AOTKF fan for more than 3 decades!)

    Call the museum. The calendar only goes thru August (and the site design is terrible) but I bet they’ll still be doing the tours in September and October. Don’t make yourself nuts! xoxo
