"Chock-full of the simple details of everyday life as well as larger tales of human joy and suffering, this volume presents an intriguing window into urban tenements just before and after the turn of the century." -School Library Journal "Alda's contemporary photos add a beautiful artistic note...The flavor of life on Orchard Street from the end of the nineteenth century through the 1930s can be tasted here." -Booklist "Right away Granfield gives her readers sensory images to latch onto. And the photographs further engage us: when we see photos of the tiny rooms, the beds doubling as sofas, the squalid toilets...we can much more easily imagine what it was like to live there in that time." -Quill & Quire "This non-fiction book is a great starting point for any social studies or history project...97 Orchard provides a lot of information without being encyclopedic in tone or presentation." -Florida Times ..".[a] wonderful resource guide...Researched and presented with the quality we've come to expect in a Granfield title, this is a winning resource for students studying the history of immigration to the New World, ethnic cultures, or turn-of-the century lifestyles." -Rockliffe Reviews "The slim, delightful volume of the stories of four immigrant families who settled in a dark tenement building on New York's Lower East Side humanizes the struggles and triumphs of those families...Kudos to the museum and to this book that offers a look back on our collective ancestors." -Kliatt
