Hamilton students in the Program in New York City recently visited the Tenement Museum on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. This fall's program on The Economics of Large Metropolitan Labor Markets is directed by Derek C. Jones, the Irma M. and Robert D. Morris Professor of Economics.

Students on the New York Program this semester are Scott Blosser ’12, Min Hyuk (Kevin) Cho ’12, Joe Ely ’12, Lamarana Diallo ’12, Emily Falso ’12, Mercedes Ferrer ’12, Mai Linh Hoang ’12, Ben Hootnick ’12, William McIvor ’12, Ho Cheung Ng ’12, Liam Ronan ’12, Steve Saurbier ’12, Shichen Xu ’12, Anna Zeng ’11, and Zijun Zhang ’12.

Built in 1863 on Orchard Street, the tenement apartment building that now houses the museum was home to nearly 7000 working class immigrants. The information provided by the museum on immigrant experiences -- particularly living and working conditions for garment workers -- is especially useful in providing historical context for the Employment Relations course, one of the courses being taught in the NYC program this semester.
