From NPR.com:

On Manhattan’s Lower East Side, 97 Orchard Street is an old tenement building. It’s now a museum. But in its life as an apartment building, it housed thousands of working class immigrants, each one with a story to tell. Now, some of those stories are being told through an exploration of the food they ate. Guy Raz speaks with Jane Ziegelman, author of 97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement.
