New York City has been heralded as the “capital of immigrant America!”
Start by exploring Castle Clinton, the nation’s first immigration station, as well as the Five Points, a former tenement-ridden slum considered to be the original melting pot. Visit the Irish Hunger Memorial and be reminded of the Irish escaping the economic devastation when they journeyed to the U.S. Then, immerse yourself in NYC’s Chinatown, home to the largest concentration of Chinese expatriates in the Western Hemisphere, and learn about the long tradition of legal and illegal discrimination Chinese-Americans have endured throughout history. Then, head to Little Italy to delve into this vibrant enclave of Italian-American culture and cuisine.
