Can someone tell me where 168 Norfolk would be in 1901 New York?

And does anyone have the census district for this address? We have
a February 1901 birth there, but the family does not appear in the 1900
indexed census. I thought I might try to find who lived there at the time.

Thank you.

Norfolk street is on the famous Lower East Side (of NYC) where many people
lived following their journey to the US

It's on the Lower East Side of NYC, right next to Suffolk Street, very
close to Stanton and Clinton, and I believe it's somewhat NW of the
intersection of Orchard and Rivington.

(Yep, I had family in the area, too. :-) )

That would be the lower East Side of Manhattan

I looked over some of my old material for 1900 ED's. I believe you are
looking for ED 227 at the north end of Suffolk between Stanton and
Houston Streets . Other ED's to the south, just incase I miss the
address, are 225, 224, 277, 276, 275, 273, and 274. With these ED's and
access to the census records it should be easy to find any address on
Suffolk. My source for 1900 ED's map, available for Manhattan only, is
LDS FHL microfilm number 1033889, Items 5(&4). This same information is
probably available in NYC but I do not know where, Library? City
Archives? NYC Local NARA?
