First published in 1890, this is the author's study of the slums of New York, where Italians, Jews, "Bohemians", Blacks and Chinese struggled against the effects of poverty, alcohol and lack of education. The author's use of photographs to put faces to his stories is recognized as a landmark in photojournalism and as a result of his book, many reforms did take place to assist New York's poor.
