The Tenement Museum will open a new kiosk at the Market Line inside the Essex Crossing development on the Lower East Side, developer Delancy Street Associates announced on Thursday. The kiosk will feature a screen with tour times and other information about the museum. When it opens later this year, the Market Line will run three city blocks and include 100 locally-sourced food, art, fashion and music vendors. The market, projected to be the largest of its kind in New York City, sits inside Essex Crossing, a 1.9-million-square foot mixed-use development.

The museum’s president, Kevin Jennings, called the alliance with the market “very natural.” He added: “Much like the Tenement Museum, The Market Line and Essex Crossing more generally are working to create understanding of the storied past of the neighborhood while continuing to give space to new immigrant narratives.”

The kiosk will also feature stories from the museum’s Your Story, Our Story project, which shares experiences from people across the country regarding American immigration and migration.

Upon completion in 2024, Essex Crossing will feature over 1,070 residential units, 350,000 square feet of office space, 400,000 square feet of retail space and the new home of the International Center of Photography.
