      Crack cocaine, a refined version of standard cocaine, produced instant addicts in the neighborhood, according to Friedrich, changing it in a profound way. There is citywide competition for admittance to Bard High School Early College on East Houston Street, offering rigorous instruction for about students in Grades 9 to He describes late nineteenth-century notions of the Lower East Side as a place of entrenched poverty, ethnic plurality, political activism, and "low" culture that elicited feelings of revulsion and fear among the city's elite and middle classes. Walk the alphabet streets in the daytime, weaving among pushcarts, or at night in the biting winds of winter, footsteps too close at your back.

      Areas where Spanish speaking was predominant began to be called Loisaida. The resulting -- and ongoing -- struggle between government and residents over affordable and decent housing has in turn affected real estate practices and urban development policies. More recently, the gentrification that was previously confined to north of Delancey Street continued south. Also contained within the neighborhood are strips of lighting and restaurant supply shops on the Bowery.

      The short road coming off the Bowery at Chatham Square, Division Street, was the boundary agreed to in and still exists as a street today. Today, the musical Rent plays on Broadway to a mostly white and suburban audience, MTV exploits the neighborhood's newly trendy squalor in a film promotion, and on the Internet a cyber soap opera and travel-related Web pages lure members of the middle class to enjoy a commodified and sanitized version of the neighborhood. Inhale the exotic spices from tenement hallways, smell the sweat and garbage in the streets, feel the sweltering heat of summer in the City. Second Avenue in the Lower East Side was home to many Yiddish theatre productions in the Yiddish Theater District during the early part of the 20th century, and Second Avenue came to be known as "Yiddish Broadway," though most of the theaters are gone. Based on this calculation, as of [update]the Lower East Side and East Village are considered to be gentrifying. The result is a visionary look at how political and economic actions transform neighborhoods and at what happens when a neighborhood is what is being "consumed".

Here it is without paint. One of the largest of these was located along the modern Bowery between Prince Street and Astor Placeas well as the "only separate enclave" of this type within Manhattan.

Lower East Side Story explores the issues of the neighborhoods of the time such as interracial relationships that were still forbidden along with the devastating emergence of crack cocaine.

Anyway, Huguenots and Stephen de Lancey was one no longer felt safe in France and many came here; New Rochelle was a result of this migration. Both families had long histories in New York.

Both De Donato and the story's protagonist, Paul, were forced into construction to provide for their struggling Lower East Side families. Another road, Love Lane ran across the northern stretch of the Rutgers farm. In a couple of years it will all be gone. Mele explores the ways that developers, media executives, and others have coopted the area's characteristics -- analyzing the East Village as a "style provider" where what is being marketed is "difference".

Bythe Jewish neighborhood was one of the largest of these ethnic groupings, withpeople, pushcart vendors prominent on Orchard and Grand Streets, and numerous Yiddish theatres along Second Avenue between Houston and 14th Streets.

Grand Street is one of the major business and shopping streets of Chinatown. In addition, there is a major Hare Krishna temple and several Buddhist houses of worship. In the next six months Friedrich hopes to release the series for iPads and digital readers with added features of interviews with real life characters from the time and historical photographs.

Another character is Tony, a fellow student of Friedrich's, who lived on Stanton Street between Bowery flophouses where homeless people would gather for the night. Hundreds of synagogues dot the neighborhood, often as many as six per block. In effect, Rutgers exercised his own zoning.
