I would recommend several approaches:

-look for detailed historic maps of that area in the David Rumsey collection
at www.davidrumsey.com.

-look for detailed historic maps of the area in the map section of the NYPL
website:
http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/dgdivisionbrowseresult.cfm?div_id=hm

-go in person to the Map Division of the NYPL on 42nd St. to look at Sanborn
Maps. Better yet, find a library closer to you which subscribes to ProQuest's
Sanborn Maps Geo Edition. (This service is not available to individuals, only
available to institutions.)

I was looking at a ship record in the year 1902 that had information about
my wife's grandfather. What caught my eye was that the list of names on
this page were almost all bracketed together as going to 410 E 5th street in
New York.
Would anyone know what was at this address and how it affected the new
arrivals.
