Affects of The Great Depression
It was a hard time for families and New York City's YMCA fed up to 12,000 people daily.
Families or individuals who could not pay their rent or mortgage lost their homes. Some of them, paralyzed by fear and humiliation over their sudden misfortune, simply would not or could not move. The Great Depression actually made the crime rate go up as well. The Great Plains lost population to states like California and Arizona.
Good affects did come out as well like Hollywood became popular and the movie Gone With the Wind came out. People spent time in the movie theaters a lot.
