Description
This unusual guide to the Big Apple covers the historical waves of immigration in the city—from colonial times to the Irish potato famine of the mid-19th century, from Ellis Island to the present—and ties this history to various sites in New York. An introduction sets the immigrant experience in historical context, while two fold-out maps show a bird's-eye view of the city, circa 1851, and modern Manhattan, from Liberty Island, Brooklyn Heights, and Battery Park up to 44th Street. This guidebook to a key site in American history takes visitors through the physical landscape that exists now and also to the places no longer visible. Color and black and white photos and illustrations appear on nearly every two-page spread, and the book includes a timeline, brief biographies of key figures, and a historical walking tour, along with nearby places to stay, eat, and visit.
