Monday September 18 at 7 PM Ellis Island and the American Dream

Astoria is a diverse neighborhood where many families can trace their first footsteps in America to Ellis Island.

To celebrate its opening 125 years ago as the nation’s main immigrant processing center we will be screening a film about its history.

After the film we welcome people to share their immigrant stories and why they came to Astoria.
