In-Text Citation
 At the dawn of the 20th century, democracy in the United States was at
a crossroads. Giant monopolies dominated the economy and held
corrupt politicians in their pockets, while the working class suffered to
barely survive. One can find evidence of this stark contrast in the
tenement housing of New York’s Lower East Side. Here, multiple
families lived in small damp and unsafe dwellings at a density of
300,000 people per square mile, while the city as a whole was more at
a rate of 90,000 per square mile (Hart, 208).
