Day 4 cont.
Day 4 cont.
Central Park is of a slightly large importance to the story because it is where Dom goes to find a peace of mind when he can. He also finds out people who aren’t Italian are kind, and you just have to know who the right people are to talk to. (p. 124)
Day 2 - Character Analysis
Dom is a young boy who arrives in America with only himself and his shoes given to him by his mother. He has a very kind personality, and trusts people a little easily. Dom has to learn to survive in America with his personal skills, and make friends with the right people.
Day 3 - Historical Context & Character Analysis
Day 4 cont.
Who?
In Napoli (his hometown), Beniamino is a young jewish boy who does not own much. When he arrives in America, his new name is Domenico, he is called Dom for short.
Quote: "My city Napoli..." (Napoli, 1)
What?
The story is about a young, Jewish, Italian immigrant boy who came to America with nothing and no one. He came to have a better life, and make enough money to bring his mother too.

Quote: "America. ...we'd find our fortune in America... We'd send money home..." (Napoli, 24)
When?
This story takes place in 1892, the age of industrialization. At this time, many immigrants came to America.

Quote: "This is a fictional story that takes place in 1892." (Napoli, 244)
Dom is a scrawny nine-year-old boy with black hair and dark eyes. He has a long nose as well.
Social Relationships
Dom is friends with Gaetano, Tin Pan Alley, and Grandinetti. Tin Pan Alley and Gaetano helped Dom earn money to catch a boat to his home in Napoli, Italy. Grandinetti supplies him with whatever he needs for his small sandwich business. "We're friends," (Napoli, 133).
Spiritual Religion
Dom is a young Jewish Italian boy with strong faith that he should never listen to any other religion. Even in America, he refuses to eat any meat his faith does not allow and will not enter a Catholic Church. "So now I picked out the meat," (Napoli, 169).
Differences
- Most people had to work in factories to make money, but Dom and his friends made a living by selling sandwiches on the street
- Most immigrants made enough money to only live in a tenement, whereas Dom made enough to live in a real house
- Most immigrant children were not educated at all but Dom learned the basics and made a living with his brain
- Unlike most immigrants, Dom had expensive leather shoes
Similarities
- Dom and the rest of the immigrants came here with almost nothing
- Most immigrants started a new life without family or friends
- Many families came from different countries in Europe
-Found it difficult to find good work
Problem
The main problem in the story was overcoming the problems that arose from moving to America with nobody to help or guide you.
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Where?
This is an image of a young, Italian boy. You can see he is not too wealthy and not too poor by his clothes.
This is an idea of what Dom would look like.
This is a slightly more specific image of a Jewish, Italian boy. He seems richer than in the picture before, because of his better quality clothes.
Here is a picture of some Italian boys selling
bread on Mulberry street.
Here is a picture of the type of hat Dom wore to represent his Jewish faith.
These are immigrants coming off a passenger from faraway countries, probably mostly Europe.
Another picture of immigrants coming off from a boat onto a dock; you can see they are poor and not well off. Also the boat is incredibly crowded
This is just a picture of how a city would look like during the period of Industrialization.
The original location is in Napoli. Then Dom moves to New York for a better life, and also because his mother made him without his knowledge.

Quote: "We were as proud... of being Napoletani." (Napoli, 6)
This is sort of what Napoli looked like in the past, it is a little modern but you can see some older buildings in the picture.
This is Mulberry Street, where most of the story takes place. There are a lot of Italian people, and it looks pretty crowded.
Manhattan is a very important
aspect in the story because the
main character, Dom, comes to
here after arriving in America.
Mulberry Street is located in
Manhattan. Therefore most of
the story takes place there, in
Manhattan. Ellis Island also is
a very important setting in the
novel. The boat Dom takes
from Italy docked there. Pages 79-80.
Manhattan is a very important aspect in the story because the main character, Dom, comes to here after arriving in America. In the story, the author states, “That’s the boat to Mulberry Street,” (Napoli, 80). Mulberry Street is located in Manhattan. Therefore most of the story takes place there, in Manhattan. Ellis Island also is a very important setting in the novel. The boat Dom takes from Italy docked there. “Ellis Island was easy to figure out,” (Napoli, 79). This quote proves a big part in the story takes place in Ellis Island.
