Today’s photo to beat the Monday morning blues comes from my January 2018 trip to New York City.
Ellis Island was of course the entry point for thousands of immigrants who left their homes in Europe to start a new life in USA.
From 1892 to 1954, it processed approximately 12 million immigrants. Initially the German & Russian Empires, Finland, UK & Italy provided the most immigrants, but latterly this was mainly Poles, Hungarians, Czechs, Serbs, Slovaks, Greeks, Syrians, Turks & Armenians. Many of these people were Jewish looking for a new life after WW2.
