Enjoy a brief illustrated history presentation and tour three c. 1832 federal row houses, which have been occupied by Henry Street Settlement since 1895. Highlights include: the restored dining room (site of the founding of the NAACP and where Jacob Riis and Theodore Roosevelt dined); the backyard (site of one of the first playgrounds in the nation); the bedrooms occupied by the original visiting nurses; Henry Street founder Lillian Wald's original bedroom and sleeping porch; our new "green" rain garden; and see the exterior of the adjacent vacant c.1850s firehouse where Boss Tweed once worked.
