The receding skyline towers over the storefronts and tenements of Lower Manhattan’s established ethnic neighborhoods. The abrupt transition between old and new, while picturesque, serves as a reminder of the evolution of the city and the growing separation between the working poor and the affluent business owners who sponsored the construction of the skyscrapers that would soon dominate the landscape.
