Thanks very much for your reply, Diane. Your information pretty much validates what I have found while looking for info on neighborhood as well. I have done all the federal census searches, and I am about to check the 1890 police census, to see what I can find. I have determined that the various family members started out about 1870 living on the in-town edge of Hell's Kitchen, and within a few years moved "up north" to the East Harlem area. I have made a couple of trips to the Municipal Archives, and next trip later this summer, I think I'll check the tax photos to see what I can find. They were taken long after my family was out of the area, but maybe the houses were still there.
