Museum Like other early tenements, 97 Orchard Street was a sparsely appointed building. It lacked gas for light and heat, indoor toilets and running water. But, in 1867, New York City began passing legislation to improve conditions in tenements. Housing laws also called for increased air and light in the apartments.
