Riis' Gotham Court From The Museum Of The City Of New York

Mcny Gotham Court
from the museum of the city of new york's digital collection..
I alternated many of the images with close ups of certain parts of interest. Notice the advertisement for a 1889 event at Jones Wood on page 9 of the document.It looks like it was sponsored by a Edward Lennon. That must have been a world apart from the horrors of life in the Fourth Ward at that time
