Although the United States began to severely restrict immigration in 1924, 1920s New York was still a city with a large immigrant population. Foreign-born residents played a crucial part in the city's economic, social, and cultural life. At a time when America's ready-made clothing industry was centered in New York, immigrants provided much of the labor that made the nation's suits, coats, and dresses.
