    I actually own this, but read it during my spare time at Project Gutenberg. Riss has a great gift for narrative, even if his prose is often as judgemental as the times themselves once were. While the miasma of public opinion spends a great deal of time under the constraints of "political correctness" today, Riis' narrative is unabashedly NOT correct. The way in which he describes specific races and religions is a prefect snapshot into the racial seperatism of the time.

    Definitely infuenced by its times (Victorian sentimentality), and not all about children nor all about tenements, but an interesting insight into life in NYC at the turn of the century nevertheless. The homage to firefighters was fascinating as it made you think about how hard it must have been to do that before modern equipment was available.

    I tried so hard to like this book, but as I get older I realize time is precious so I have had to let go of this one.
