NEIGHBORHOOD

Greenwich Settlement House"" is known throughout the country for its special type of social service, and this account of the development of the project should appeal to social workers and laymen interested in the subject. Unfortunately, the handling of the material is disappointing. A dull, matter-of-fact presentation cannot quite kill the teeming human interest of the subject. A woman whose personality is outstanding has managed to take all personality out of her story. It is clear and straightforward, but there is no spark of inspiration or individuality. It is a pedestrian report on the development, the influence of the settlement on the community, the war years, the depression years, the heyday, the changes in New York during its forty years of life, and the need for a new housing program.
