The non-fiction work Our Crowd, by Stephen Birmingham (published in the 1960s) remains a fascinating study of such German-Jewish New York families as the Lehmans, the Schiffs, the Loebs, the Warburgs, the Guggenheims, the Strauses, the Goldmans, and the Sachses - including their attitude towards the later Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe.  There was certainly no love lost between those already established on the Upper West Side and the "teeming masses" on the Lower East Side!
