Explore how the influx of Chinese immigrants, after restrictive immigration quotas were lifted in the 1960s, would forever change the landscape of New York City. On this virtual tour, you’ll hear the stories of the Wongs, a Chinese American family who moved to the Lower East Side and lived in 103 Orchard Street in the 1980s.  You’ll look at how they made a home in the neighborhood and how their experiences reflected the new growth of Chinese communities and the garment industry in New York. Why was Mrs. Wong’s work in the garment industry so important for the family? What was the impact of immigration law on the Wongs’ experiences? Hear memories and stories directly from the Wongs, and get perspective from scholars and historians throughout the tour.  Advanced registration required.
