A pioneering exploration of housing legislation published in 1914, this book examined the little housing laws in the country at the time, tenement house laws in New York City. It proposed a model housing law which later influenced a number of state and city legislators throughout the country to adapt the proposal into their own laws. An updated and expanded edition was published in 1920.

LAWRENCE VEILLER was secretary of the New York State Tenement House Commission, and First Deputy Tenement Commissioner of the Tenement Department of New York City.
