See Sam Robert’s “A Neighborhood Through Time”

A shuttered Bernstein on Essex Street, where many Jewish shops have gone out of business. “The Lower East Side Jewish community has lost to the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side and the suburbs,” said Juda Engelmayer, an owner of Kossar’s Bialys on Grand Street.

Sam Roberts of the New York Times offered readers the Lower East Side in pictures as seen through the lens of photographer Danny Stein.  It’s a warm reminder a my home for 43 years.
