The LES Tenement Museum has a small, highly edited selection of books, which slip into simple ethnic categories (Italian, Jewish, Asian and more). A respectful tour through the preserved apartments of the Rogarshevskyas and Gumpertz and an anonymous seamstress from Poland, will whip you into the mood for titles like When I was Puerto Rican

, Whoas Irish?

and, of course, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

.
