As a kid (say 9- 10 back in 53-54), my mother use to take me downtown tho the eye and ear hospital. This was on 2nd ave and 14-13 st.. Anyway after the visit we use to walk down to Houston St..To me ,I said "how do people live here".From a kid's eyes,the place was a dump.Of course those very dumpy apt buildings are now gold rent.Times change. Any thoughts
