JJ Lyr Req: General Slocum (wreck of/Disaster) (34) RE: Lyr Req: General Slocum (wreck of/Disaster) 20 Dec 07

The area depopulated in the aftermath of the wreck of the Genral Slocum was indeed called Little Germany (Kleindeutschland) and was located on the Lower East Side, centered on Tompkins Square Park, site of the memorial.

The German community (in the main) then moved north to Yorkville, on the Upper East Side.

No doubt both these enclaves were also called "Germantown."
