Lower East Side Tenement Museum (1258 words)
While both tenements and apartment buildings refer to multiple family dwellings, the origins of the word tenement and its association with overcrowding, poverty, and working-class life date to the early 19th century when large-scale residential tenancy began to develop in New York City.
Vast numbers of tenements were built in the mid-nineteenth century demonstrating their profitability in the absence of government regulation.
Tenements built after 1901 are called "new law" tenements while those built between 1879 and 1901 are called "old law." Since 97 Orchard Street was built before any housing reforms, it is known as a "pre-old law" tenement.
Tenement (413 words)
A tenement is any type of property, such as an estate or land, that is owned by one person and leased to another.
Although a tenement has many units attached together under one roof, they are divided by walls to give each family or occupant his or her own space and privacy.
Tenements are picking up in popularity as housing costs rise and people move closer into the city center (or downtown) to save money on transportation, mortgage costs, house renovations and taxes.
