Opportunity at a Glance: As millions of immigrants arrived on New York’s Lower East Side at the turn-of-the-century, they found themselves in an unfamiliar landscape filled with new challenges. Neighborhood institutions such as settlement houses, synagogues and newspapers provided social services and advice to newcomers navigating the nuances of American life.
