"The district chosen is the most predominantly Italian in New York City and is provided with only a minimum of public health and social agencies. According to the census of 1910, the population was 38,269, of whom 34,848 were Italians, either foreign born or of foreign parentage. It comprises forty-four city blocks of which seventeen are devoted entirely to business, leaving an average population of about 1,400 per block ... It is a far cry from sunny Italy to the crowded tenements with their dark, unventilated rooms . . . In AICP pamphlet "Developing Child Health via Community Organization," c1919, page 11. Caption: Mothers with their children of all ages patiently waiting their turn to hear the doctor's verdict.
