    How to use "Tenement district" in context?

    The tenement district is a part of New York City originally built for working class people. The area was originally built up on the western edge of Lower Manhattan, between the Hudson River and Cloisters Yard. The tenement district slowly declined in the early 20th century, and by the time of the Great Depression, it had been completely replaced by the Worker's City. Today, the tenement district is mostly a tourist site, with a few small sections still in use as low-income housing.
