New York. The Barge Office, Battery Park, April 17, 1902.
When the Federal Government took over Immigration from New York State in 1890, The Barge Office became the temporary Immigration station while Ellis Island was completed, between April 19,1890 and December 31, 1891. and again from June 15, 1897 to December 16, 19900, after a fire at Ellis Island.
Thousands of protesters gathered today (1/29/17) at Battery Park in NYC in order to protest Trump’s executive order of banning refugees and Muslims from 7 countries. Proudly, I was one of the protesters. Share to spread awareness that not just New Yorkers, but the whole world stands against Trump!
