And the Lower East Side History Project points us to this date in history:

The Astor Place Riot on May 10, 1849 was the 2nd deadliest in NY history, surpassed only by the Draft Riots of July 13-16, 1863. The confrontation outside of The Astor Place Opera House symbolized the growing division between Protestant & Catholic, rich & poor, & patrician & slum-dweller. It was sparked by long-standing rivalry between American actor Edwin Forrest & English William Charles Macready.
