Napoli, Donna Jo. The king of Mulberry Street. Wendy Lamb/Random
House, 2005 [0-385-75653-9]
It is 1892 and things are bad in Ireland so Domís mother smuggles him
on a ship to America and tells him to make his way to Mulberry Street
and to always listen.. learn by listening.  After making his way
through Ellis Island, he finds the hard life of an immigrant. One day
he hears that people up-town will pay good money for a sandwich at
lunch time so he starts a little empire in the street sandwich
business.  This 245 page book shows the harsh realities of being an
immigrant in New York at the turn of the century.
