"The 'improbable memoir and epic history' of one New York address, 239 East 7th Street, describing its series of inhabitants, all craving the security, boundary, and history that is home. With control and confidence, Greider tells her personal narrative while excavating an enormous cast of characters and their connections to and journey through one building in the Lower East Side that comes to represent Manhattan's evolution.... An astonishing, complex, yet easy-to-digest tale. Greider succeeds brilliantly in magnifying 239--its tenants, structure, and surroundings--so thoroughly that we feel its grit, then zooming out to reveal 'multitudes dancing on the head of a pin'--the macrocosm that is home, city, humanity."
