We are proud to announce the release of a new book by Lower East Side History Project's Eric Ferrara and David Bellel, entitled Lower East Side: Then & Now, published by Arcadia Publishing.
Using side-by-side images, Ferrara and Bellel compare
drastic changes over the last century to select local storefronts and
street scapes by presenting dozens of rare and previously unpublished
photographs, along with an historical summary of each photo based on
Lower East Side: Then & Now also
features "now" images by local photographer Shirley Dluginski and an
insightful foreword by historian Joyce Mendelsohn, author of The Lower
East Side Remembered and Revisited.
