In 1898, my great-grandmother, Maria, immigrated to New York City from the village of Jablonca, Torna - Abauj, Hungary. She was following a man who would eventually be her future husband. While she was in New York City, she lived on Attorney Street which is, luckily, still quite intact in its 19th century aura. There is a Jewish tenement history museum which portrays the Jewish immigrants' lives on the Lower East Side. Although it was not built until 1913, the original synagogue is still active around the corner from Attorney Street.
