In honor of our New York City trip, I’m putting out the best history related New York Twitter follows!
I point out that our trip will have something of an immigration bias in its focus–did I mention we homeschool?–so, may of my contributions, here, are reflective of that preparation! Commence singing in your best Sinatra impression, “New York…”
Really wish we had the time this trip! It was awful walking past it and not being able to stop!
Great trip! The teenager was especially moved listening to the immigrants share their first sightings of Lady Liberty.
This is a good follow if you’re interested in Ellis Island and immigration news.
Frequently tweeting profiles of the pieces in their vast collection!!
Even better than Ellis Island for current immigration policy discussions and urban life.
News about libraries and gems from the collection!
Great resource for history of slaves and their progeny in this country!
Great museum about the Chinese experience in America! Worth the trip, follow for related news.
