Abstract

abstract:

Harrisburg's urban reformers promised better housing and living conditions for all the city's residents, but the demolition of the Old Eighth Ward and the construction of more expensive housing between 1910 and 1930 made it harder for new Greek immigrants to make a living and a home in the city. This article compares demographic and geospatial data for Greek immigrant communities in Harrisburg and neighboring Lancaster to highlight the different challenges and opportunities of Greek communities during the era of City Beautiful.
