"I left my suitcase in the office and walked along Cherry Street, under Manhattan Bridge, looking at the tenements that had 'furnished rooms' signs outside."---from THE LONG LONELINESS by Dorothy Day.

This photo, taken on Cherry Street, shows the Brooklyn Bridge in the distance. The Manhattan Bridge is not visible because it is almost overhead. It was here that Dorothy found a furnished room when she left her parents home and found a job at the NEW YORK CALL. The story can be read in the chapter "The East Side" in her autobiography, "The Long Loneliness." RS
