6 p.m. Join Tredwell servant Bridget Murphy in the kitchen for, what else, green beer.
6:30 p.m. Then take a “back-stairs” tour and experience what daily life was really like for the Irish servants through their eyes. You’ll visit four floors of period rooms, from the ground floor kitchen to the 4th floor servants’ quarters, where they lived and did some of their work.
This unparalleled tour tells the heroic story of the Irish women who worked in domestic service in 19th century New York, overcoming homesickness, culture shock, and prejudice to cultivate a new home and a new identity on foreign soil – and ultimately altering the face of New York City forever.Buy tickets/get more info now
