Baker, Kevin. Paradise Alley. New York: HarperCollins, 2002.

The 1863 Draft Riots in New York City, told from multiple points of view that reflect the city's diverse social classes and ethnic groups. Very similar to Peter Quinn's Banished Children of Eve; I would choose Baker's novel for plot and dramatic tension, Quinn's for historical details.
