A classic contribution of journalism and literature to the emerging issue of tenement life and urban squalor that was to be found in our New York of the 1890s. I had first heard about this due to the photographs, but the stories and anecdotes will hold the reader fast; offering both a glimpse of a past world, along with timeless grappling of the problem of the poor, of criminal elements, and of the efforts to integrate immigrant populations. Anyone interested in sociology, urban affairs, or simply American history could do worse than turn to this slim volume.
