Known for its lyric out of Simon and Garfunkel's: The sounds of silence, "tenement halls" are rooms or sets of separate residences in housing complexes and apartments. Specifically rundown, overcrowded and low income apartments.
"And the signs said
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence"
"I live down in the tenement halls on 136th, its a real sh*thole"
