Abandoned: The Untold Story of Orphan Asylums

When: Tue., March 10, 7-8 p.m. 2015

By: Michael Keene. Abandoned presents eye-opening, true-to-life tales of the Five Points area of New York City and the desperation of a million Irish immigrants who hoped to find better conditions in New York after leaving behind the famine they experienced in their homeland in 1848. Unfortunately, after arriving in Lower Manhattan, they found squalor, gang violence, and disease.
