    "It is one block from Africa to Mexico, from Mexico to Italy two blocks,
    from Italy to Greece three blocks... Mother Halsted is wise. Is patient.
    She knows their tastes, their traditions, their beliefs. She puts the
    immigrant to sleep in his first New World bed. She holds him in her
    slum arms. Chicago's most humane street, she adopts them all."
