Full description
Learn the immigrant history of New York City as you follow in the footpaths of the first Chinese, Irish, and Italian settlers. Travel through different historical periods, such as the Gold Rush, railroads, and birth of the Chinatowns.

Hear about the gangs of the Irish-dominated Five Points district, including "Boss Tweed" and his Tammany Hall political machine. Trace the path of the Mezzogiorno exodus of the Italian settles, to the origins of Little Italy.

Revel in details about how each neighborhood was established and follow the struggles of the sun-drenched immigrants. Marvel at how they and their descendants built the greatest nation in the world.

Pass George Washington's revolutionary headquarters, the first tenement, the saloon where Irving Berlin started his career, and the birthplace of the American Mafia along the way. See where Lucky Luciano had his office, and hear about the first pizzeria in America.
