New York Immigrant Experience free pdf Unique among historical guides to New York City, this book covers separate waves of immigration from colonial times to the mid-nineteenth-century Irish Potato Famine, from Ellis Island--which, between 1892 and 1954, processed some twelve million newcomers--to the present day, and it ties this history to various sites in the city. Timeline BooksThese one-of-a-kind guides allow readers to move through time as never before, bringing them face to face with the people and events behind some of America's most important historical landmarks and locations.
