How did people commit suicide in the US in the 1930s? Does it make a difference if it's a female?

I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time googling this, but that's what I need to know, for a fiction project. A woman in New York City commits suicide in the early 1930s. How does she accomplish this? It has to be something that leaves her in her home -- so, she doesn't jump off a bridge. What would be historically accurate for that time?
