Mom & Dad in New York [Day Eight, 12/27/07]

On day eight we celebrated our inner immigrant but visiting the famed Ellis Island museum.

This is a cool 3D bar graph that illustrates all the waves of US immigrants that have come from all the regions of the earth. Here Dad stands behind the bar representing European immigrants coming from 1841-1860. That's when his family came from England.

And here Mom stands behind the bar representing Latin American immigrants from 1961-1980. She came to the US in 1970.

After Ellis Island we met up with Erik at Fraunces Tavern, one of George Washington's old haunts.
