"Derisively nicknamed “The Sweatshop” by residents, Chesler has seen generations of low-income families pass through the small textile houses and warehouses that dot the neighborhood, or trek across the Outcault Bridge to work at the Goodman-Donenfeld factories, from Irish to Polish to Hispanic families depending on the decade. Dismissed by many as “the city’s eyesore,” Chesler’s neighborhood bars and riverside eateries offer a distinctive atmosphere for the adventurous visitor."
