The Police Census taken in 1890 by the New York City Police Department covered
all of what was then New York City, i.e., Manhattan and the western portion of
the Bronx. A police census was also taken in 1895, according to Jacob A. Riis's
"The Battle with the Slum," 1902, but it doesn't seem to be extant.
