Tenement Museum | From Ellis Island to Orchard Street with Victoria Confino

From Ellis Island to Orchard Street with Victoria Confino is an online game that transports players back to 1916 to experience life as a new immigrant in New York City.

The game allows you to create an immigrant character and passport, sail across the Atlantic, go through inspection at Ellis Island, and finally to build a life as a new immigrant in New York City. Along the way, players can get insights and information from Victoria Confino, a girl who immigrated in 1913 and lives in a tenement on New York’s Lower East Side. From Ellis Island to Orchard Street includes period photos and primary source documents that illuminate the great wave of immigration to America. Created by The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, Ariel Newland, Jeff Tancil and William Martin.
