Immigration Exhibit on displayImmigration in New York State, 1650-1950

New York is an icon of immigration history, but there's much more to it than Ellis Island.  We acknowledge that we live on land taken from indigenous people, who were enslaved, indentured, and otherwise subjugated for centuries.  Waves of immigrants brought trauma and experienced trauma, all while ultimately working toward the vibrant, diverse New York State we enjoy today.  This exhibit begins with the arrival of Dutch settlers and continues through the end of World War II.
