Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A truly wonderful book capturing times past in the Lower East Side of NYC. Great interviews, easy to read, and great photographs. Having grown up in NYC this is a great bit of nostalgia, but anyone would enjoy this book, and enjoy the interviews with people who lived there. Highly recommended!

I found this book to be fresh, humorous and realistic about life in New York. Anyone who has ever lived in New York City or in a neighborhood will have a personal connection. You'll really enjoy reading these true stories.

Those interviewed in this fascinating book are as colorful as the Lower East Side. Nina Howes did an excellent job in interviewing representative people who have or still do presently live on the Lower East Side. This book just reinforces the notion that the Lower East Side, as a immigrant neighborhood, gives a vivid picture of 'America.'From a third generation Chinese resident, to a 90+ professional photographer who recalls developing her film in her kitchen; to stories of overcoming hardship and achieving the American dream, I was enthralled with this book.
