The LES Tenement Museum, housed next door to a series of apartments that were home to nearly 7,000 working-class immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries, aims to offer a glimpse into the lives of those residents. The institution’s shop continues the mission by selling a mix of educational and playful knickknacks and memorabilia that retell the many stories of Manhattan’s Lower East Side—and show off some serious NYC pride. We’re especially fond of the New York Greek-diner mug ($13), a ceramic interpretation of the classic "We are happy to serve you" cup, and the subway-map Mighty Wallet ($15).
