Emma Goldman Residence

208 e. 13th street

The Venue

Political activist and writer Emma Goldman lived here from 1903-1913. Goldman, a Jewish immigrant, became known by the FBI as “one of the most dangerous women in the country” for her controversial stances on issues like free speech, birth control, labor unions, women’s rights, and her anarchist philosophy. She published her magazine Mother Earth on site while living here.

Goldman was deported to Russia in 1919 along with as many as 250 other immigrant radicals.
