Pioneros: Puerto Ricans in New York City 1892–1948 (NY) (Images of America) (English and Spanish Edition)





The his­to­ry of Puer­to Ricans in the so-called “Babel of Steel” dates back more than a cen­tu­ry. Through hun­dreds of images of the “pioneers”-those Puer­to Rican migrants who estab­lished them­selves in New York City between the 1890s and the end of World War II-we cap­ture a glimpse of their dai­ly lives and of their indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive sto­ries. This rich col­lec­tion of images from the Archives of the Cen­ter for Puer­to Rican Stud­ies at Hunter Col­lege helps to exam­ine the his­to­ry of the Puer­to Rican com­mu­ni­ty at a time when it was spread­ing its roots in New York City’s social, polit­i­cal, cul­tur­al, and eco­nom­ic life.
