Re: Orphanages/Asylums in the NY area- 1893, 1899 #general

Try the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum. In the 1920 Census, I found
relatives there. I have no idea if this institution still exists under
a different name.

Many children were placed in these institutions temporarily because the
parents were too poor, or to busy surviving, to take care of their
children properly and this was done as a community service. I believe
that many were taught trades there, too.
