I remember my mother telling me she grew up in an area
of Manhattan which was "settled" mainly by Hungarians,
in the period around 1920. I found on the census for
that year that their address was East 77th. St. She
told me how her brother swam in the East River. My mom
gave the area a name -something "ville" but I may be
mistaken.
Does anyone know what this section of Manhattan was
called at that period of time?
Thanks for any help.
