Excerpt from The Architectural Review, Vol. 22: January, 1917

It is well to. Remember that these districts also represent the huge immigrant centers of population. Thus new Americans un wittingly become victims of housing and living conditions which, instead of creating them, are totally foreign to their experience. We may well blame new Americans for accepting, and, indeed, later, for aiding and abetting them; but we cannot fairly lay at their door the responsibility for the existence of these conditions.

Too often the immigrant family, immediately upon its landing, will make a bee-line for the cheapest rooms available, only to discover. Too late that they have apparently located in, a saloon or vice district. Is it fair to say that the individual family created the saloon or vice district? Another immigrant family, moving into more expensive quarters, crowds the home with boarders, only to realize, sooner or later, that it has Virtually capitulated to these king - pins of the average tenement home. Yet the boarding system is an American expediency, alien to the average peasant family of southeastern. Europe, whence comes our new immigration. Many nationalities, who bring with them a high degree of home morality from the old country, thus ex bibit unfortunate tendencies and reactions under housing con ditions in America. They err sadly in their adjustments to these conditions; but we more than err in suffering these conditions to remain, year after year.
