Lower East Side Tenement Museum Shop
Tenement Museum
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).

The Tenement Museum is awesome but even if you don't get a chance to go you should absolutely stop into the gift shop. They have a very impressive collection of books from immigrants of all sorts, very informative employees and great gifts all around. I spotted one of my favorite books of all time 'The brief and wondrous life of Oscar Wao" and got some good recommendations as well! Two thumbs up for sure.
