Hi Jibaro, Thanks for replying so quickly! I have gone on to the Museum's pages, and checked out quite a bit of info and many photos. Unfortunately, I haven't found anything that really answered many of my questions about what life was like in East Harlem in the 1890s. The journalists and photographers of the time were apparently much more interested in documenting life on the west side, like Morningside and the "suburbs" of the well-to-do. And the notorious neighborhoods of Hell's Kitchen and Five Points. So I'm still open for suggestions and information... (Please forgive my limited nowledge of NYC geography if I make an error. I'm a native of Massachusetts, and have only visited in person a couple of times - despite my frequent visits in history and documents, and online.)
Thanks for taking the time... Sue
