On this day in 1911, 146 people, mostly young immigrant women, died a horrific death in New York.

You are safer because of them. .

'They all saw what looked like a bundle of fabric from the garment factory come out of the window. “He’s trying to save the best cloth,” remarked a man, thinking that the factory owners were tossing out their fabric in an attempt to save it.
.
.
Halfway down, the wind caught it and the bundle opened.
.

It was not a bundle – it was a girl.'

The best thing about #nycpublicschools is how political and politicized the spaces are without making a big deal about it. This mural is in the auditorium. NBD. #triangleshirtwaistfactory #nyc #ps33 #murals #union

One of the reasons I love him so much 🤣

Commonly said to be the incident that sparked the New Deal, the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on March 25, 1911 was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of New York City and the country. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers – 123 women and 23 men – who died from the fire, smoke inhalation, or falling or jumping to their deaths. Most of the victims were recent Jewish and Italian immigrant women aged 16 to 23; of the victims whose ages are known, the oldest victim was Providenza Panno at 43, and the youngest were 14-year-olds Kate Leone and "Sara" Rosaria Maltese. The factory was located on the eighth, ninth and tenth floors of the Asch Building, at 23–29 Washington Place in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, now known as the Brown Building and part of New York University. Because the owners had locked the doors to the stairwells and exits – a then-common practice to prevent workers from taking unauthorized breaks and to reduce theft – many of the workers who could not escape from the burning building simply jumped from the high windows. The fire led to legislation requiring improved factory safety standards and helped spur the growth of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU), which fought for better working conditions for sweatshop workers.-- Friday, June 2, 2017 #FilmingNYC #Day53 #Filming2017 #FilmingLongIsland #TriangleShirtwaistFactory #TriangleShirtwaistFactoryFire #BerkshireWomensHistoryAssociation #Smithsonian #GreenwichVillage #IndustrialDisaster #ILGWU #InternationalLadiesGarmentWorkersUnion
