Experience a tour of the “other side” of Victorian New York. While much of the city was enjoying a fair amount of prosperity and building fancy homes and shops, many thousands of residents had to live in filthy tenements without clean water, decent lighting, health care or any of the other basic amenities. For the poor who were forced out onto the streets, violence and disease resulted in an early and certain death. This glimpse into the dark side of the era is made possible through the New York Council for the Humanities Speakers Program.
