About This Activity

Explore the ethnic roots of New York and the United States beginning at the American icon Statue of Liberty.  You will see how immigration influenced and made up the very foundation of the city.  People from around the world came at different times and for different reasons, but all left and continue to leave their marks on business, politics, food, neighborhood life and the very character of New York.
