The Lower East Side in Manhattan, New York, is symbolic of American Jewry. Since the mid 1800's, sometimes earlier, European Jews emigrated from various countries and settled in New York. Their most common destination was the Lower East Side in Manhattan, and since then this area is well known for having a rich Jewish heritage and history. The Jews that settled in this part of New York often arrived in waves. After the European revolts of 1848, many Jews, as well as other immigrant groups, traveled to the United States. The biggest wave of Jews arrived from the late 1800's to the early 1900's: "From 1881 to 1924, 1.5 million Jews left the shtetlach (villages) and cities of Eastern Europe. Almost all came to the United States, most winding up in New York City. By 1900, the Lower East Side was not only an urban region of astonishing ethnic diversity but also the most densely populated place in the world. These waves of Jewish immigrants created the rich cultural heritage and helped develop the Lower East Side with various new businesses, literary ideas, and religious faiths."
