Tony Schwartz’s audio-documentary Nueva York, released in 1955, presents the culture and conflict surrounding the influx of Puerto Rican immigrants to New York City in the 1950s. Tracks feature music lamenting the trials faced by Puerto Ricans in America, personal accounts of hardships and discrimination, as well as recorded interactions between Puerto Ricans and the New York municipal government. Schwartz also includes interviews with native New Yorkers; some speak disparagingly of the immigrants’ dress, social conduct, and growing influence in the city, and others sympathize with the problems of poverty and crime in the Puerto Rican communities. Echoes of this tension remain relevant today. Liner notes include black-and-white illustrations of the Puerto Rican immigrant experience.
