311 East 100th Street, East Harlem. From the book jacket; "The Tragic Story of a New York tenement - the landlords and tenants, the politicians and social reformers who made it a national disgrace."

Book Excerpt: 
"In 1959, as an undercover newspaper reporter, I lived as a tenant in some of New York's worst tenements. I saw animal-like overcrowding, prostitution, gambling, drunkenness, fire and building violations, petty thievery, lack of water, air, heat, and light. In the filthy buildings where I lived, I also saw unscrupulous rent-gouging and exploitation. . ."
