East of Broadway is the semi-autobiographical story of an extended family of Jewish immigrants as they cope with the tribulations and fight the economic odds to escape the teaming ghetto situated at the lower tip of Manhattan - south of Canal Street and east of Broadway.  This book also narrates an important chapter in the larger story of America's rise to greatness during the first decade of the 20th century, when New York became a world-class hub of financial activity and artistic culture - with major help from European immigrants who flooded through the New York gateway at a rate approaching a million a year.
