From 1925 onward, the City would experience a massive cultural renaissance. New venues were opening all over the city to accommodate the growing demand for arts and entertainment, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Savoy Ballroom along with the Paramount, Roxy and Ziegfeld Theatres. The Holland Tunnel would also open its entrance for automobiles, which facilitated the growth of suburban communities in New Jersey.
