  • The Lodging Houses : Nurseries Of Crime ( 1889) Inspector Thomas Byrnes

    Byrnes elaborates on the criminal element which the lodging houses in New York had been producing. This article appeared in the North American Review (Boston) on September 1, 1889.

    The development of the NY lodging house began with the appearance of a man named Howe from Boston in 1877.

    Howe's first lodging house in Manhattan was opened in 1877. He died in 1882. At the time of this article's publication, there were 345 lodging houses in Manhattan.
