The story of New York City is in many ways the story of its waves of immigration between the 1600s and the early 20th century. And the stories of those immigrants are in many ways the story of Europe between the 1600s and the early 20th century. We'll explore the most interesting city in the world through Gangs of New York (Irish mid 19th century), Hester Street and Once Upon a Time in America (Jewish immigration in the turn of the 20th century), The Immigrant (Polish immigrants and the Ellis Island Experience) and The Godfather II (Italian immigration in the 20th century).
