FOURTEENTH STREET—Stanton to Houston Streets. — ‘Cat Alley’ is the local designation of a group of dilapidated tenant-houses in an alley on Cannon Street. The alley is unpaved, and is excessively filthy. THis privy is a small and broken-down structure, covering only part of the vault, which is now full to almost overflowing. The inhabitants are degraded, both physically and socially.
