This traveling exhibit from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ touring program, "NEH on the Road," documents the squalid living conditions of New York’s poor immigrants and laborers in “The Gilded Age” of the early 20th century. This contrast to the growing wealth of millionaires, such as Carnegie and Rockefeller, inspired many reforms of working-class housing. Riis was a Danish-born American photographer (1849-1914).
This event was made possible with a generous donation from Edwin & Irma Wolf.
