Details: This poster shows a black and white photo of four young boys playing in a wheelbarrow. It is next to an open fire hydrant. The picture is from the Lower East Side of New York City, 1937.
The Lower East Side is a neighborhood in the southeastern part of New York City borough of Manhattan. One of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, the Lower East Side has long been known as a lower-class, working neighborhood and often as a poor and diverse community. The Lower East Side once was and still is a center for a lively Jewish culture. More recently, it has been settled by immigrants from Latin America and elsewhere.
