Shutting Out the Sky
life in the tenements of New York, 1880-1924
Tenements: shutting out the sky
Settling in: greenhorns and boarders
Everyone worked on
On the streets: pushcarts, pickles, and play
A new language, a new life
Looking to the future: will it ever be different?
Photographs and text document the experiences of five individuals who came to live in the Lower East Side of New York City as children or young adults from Belarus, Italy, Lithuania, and Romania at the turn of the twentieth century.
