Bronze Threshold In Battery Park


We know that the immigrants built this country, suffering years and years of toil and struggle. This bronze sculpture in Battery Park celebrates the diversity of New York City.

The figures with their dramatic poses include a freed African slave, a worker, a priest and an Eastern European Jew. Indeed this was a threshold before the freedom beckoned guaranteeing our rights and responsibilities.

  9. I think it is enriching for the people that have forgotten their struggles to be reminded of them and for the new immigrants, it is good to know that others struggled like them. If you want to know more about the latter go to healing- the- immigrant- family.com
