Synopsis

America's "melting pot" began here in New York City, as millions of immigrants from all over the world streamed past the Statue of Liberty and into Ellis Island to begin their lives in their new country. In this book, you'll find walking tours that help you discover the most important landmarks and historical sites that mattered to these new Americans. You'll explore New York's Lower East Side, Little Italy, Chinatown, and gateways to American culture--and you'll go uptown to the Barrio, Astoria, and Harlem to find new communities with deep roots in countries half a world away. The New York Immigrant Experience also points you toward present-day restaurants, lodging, and shopping to help you share the cultures that make New York the most diverse city in the United States.
