Could you let us all know the answer to this question--I have the same question but
for other addresses in Manhattan.

Thank you,

I have found my ancestors on the 1910 census -- they lived in a building at 195
Madison Street on New York's Lower East Side. The building had 16 units, numbered
on the census >from 277 to 292. My family was #282. My question is: did census
takers start at the bottom of apartment buildings and work their way up, numbering
units consecutively as they ascended?
