In her 2000 book Lower East Side Memories: A Jewish Place in America, Hasia Diner explains that the Lower East Side is especially remembered as a place of Jewish beginnings for Ashkenazi American Jewish culture. Vestiges of the area's Jewish heritage exist in shops on Hester and Essex Streets, and on Grand Street near Allen Street. While the Lower East Side has been a place of successive immigrant populations, many American Jews relate to the neighborhood in a strong manner, and Chinatown holds a special place in the imagination of Chinese Americans, just as Astoria in Queens holds a place in the hearts of Greek Americans.

Reviews about Lower East Side Memories: A Jewish Place in America (2):
Goltigor
It is a very good book ,extremely well researched; This is one book that will keep on my shelves.I just wish that it had been available in Kindle format.
Stanober
A truly wonderful book for Jewish and non-Jewish, New Yorker and non-New Yorker alike. This is not a tourist guide to the LES, so if you're looking for a travel book this isn't it.

What it is goes deep into what it is to be Jewish in America, whether you or your family ever lived in NY. The book explains how the LES came to represent Jewishness in America, how people looked at it as a common factor in their lives. Even though more Jews settled in Brooklyn and Harlem than on the LES, that one area has come to represent everything Jewish in America.

Reading this book will give you an idea of what people relocating from Russia, Eastern Europe, Poland, etc, faced upon arrival in this country. Beyond that though it shows why people still fell drawn to the LES generations later.

A truly great book that needs to be read by everyone since we are all newcomers to America.
