Immigration & Innovation in New York City

The social history and cultural significance of America can be told in New York City, where immigrants and innovators have developed the city into a unique and thriving metropolis of 8 million people. Exploring the rich history of the American “melting pot” at the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Tenement Museum and in neighbourhoods like Chinatown and Little Italy, students will relate New York City’s historical evolution with its evolving contemporary development. Analyzing past achievements alongside current cultural transformations in neighbourhoods such as Chelsea, DUMBO, Brooklyn and Battery Park, students will gain unique insights into the impact cultural development has on the societal fabric of New York City.
