St. Patrick's Day is known for its big celebrations. But one Manhattan museum is taking a more immersive look at Irish heritage.

Simone Boyce visited the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. On the Irish outsiders tour you can visit restored apartments from the 1860s, some with the original paint still chipping off the walls. It is a unique way to discover how immigrants celebrated their Irish identity.
