ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Puerto Rican immigrants in New York City. Puerto Ricans started immigrating to the U.S. in droves after World War II, with about 300,000 of them living in the city's five boroughs as of 1950. Many of them still live in the city's slums, but they persist because of hopes for a better life for their children. Their jobs, neighborhood activities and accommodations are also discussed.
