Joplin arrived in New York in the early summer, intent upon establishing contacts with publishers and securing backers for his new opera, on which he was still working. He moved into a boarding house on West 26th Street, near Tin Pan Alley, Black Bohemia, and the theater district. Almost immediately, he sold two rags to Jos. W. Stern, a publisher known for welcoming African American composers. He also established a relationship with the editors of the American Musician and Art Journal, which gave him excellent press for the next few years. By the end of the year he had decided to remain in New York, and self-published School of Ragtime, an instructional manual, which he gave it to others to market.
