Dive into the Puerto Rican migrant experience in 1960s New York City, and see what opportunities and challenges they faced migrating as US citizens. Visit the home of the Saez Velez family, who migrated from Puerto Rico and lived at 103 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side. Like on the Under One Roof building tour, you'll explore the stories of Ramonita Rivera Saez and her sons Jos and Andy through photographs, objects, and oral histories. How did they establish themselves in New York? How did they meet those challenges to help make a more inclusive city? Hear directly from members of the family and from scholars of Puerto Rican history as we explore these questions and more.
