1950s Lower Class Slang

Setting: 1950s, somewhere around Manhattan-think Newsies

Questions: So I have a character from New York who grew up pretty much an orphan in the mid-late 1950s. What's some common slang I could use?

Also, how could I write out his accent-nothing major just subtle things?

Research Done: Googled "new york street slang" "1950s street slang" Wikipedia'd "slang dictionary" Also, I browsed this http://www.mvhsdrama.com/50sSlang.htm
