The Italian colonies of New York City

Mangano, Antonio, 1869-1951

There is probably no class of people in America which are attracting, today, quite as much attention to themselves as the Italians. This is due doubtless in part to the marvelous history of the country from which they come and in part to the economical and social conditions in which they are found. And yet notwithstanding the widespread interest in this people, very little accurate information has thus far been gathered concerning them.

Other nationalities have fortunately had among their number those who have been interested in the social welfare of their compatriots. The result has been the founding of organizations of various sorts, established for the two-fold purpose of studying and investigating the conditions of their particular nationalities, and so far as possible of bettering those conditions. This has not been true in regard to the Italians. The only organization which is doing anything worth mentioning along this line is that known as "The Society for the Protection of Italian Immigrants".
