ReceptionEdit

Like many American films of the time, New York was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, in 1918 the Chicago Board of Censors issued an Adults Only permit for the film and required a cut, in Reel 2, of the two intertitles "Edna enjoys the luxuries that King provides her" and "And thus Oliver King becomes a benedict", and, Reel 3, two views of a nude model.[4]
