What was the name given to low-cost, multifamily dwellings in the cities in the late 1800s? A. Apartments B. Projects C. Tenements D. Double blocks
During the industrialization of the United States in the 19th century, immigrants were housed in old houses or warehouses, which were bought and divided to be distributed among the families. These buildings did not meet all living standards completely, for example they were very hazardous in the case of a fire, but they were enough for the families trying to earn a living for themselves. These low-cost dwellings were referred to as tenements.
