Hope to finish "American Passage" by Vincent J. Cannato sometimes today.
It's about the history of Ellis Island and immigration to America. The first immigration center was opened in 1855 and run by the state of NY, it was named Castle Garden.
FYI: Castle Clinton, also referred to as Castle Garden, is a fort and national monument located in Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City. The structure has served as a fort, theater, opera house, national immigrant receiving station, and aquarium throughout its long history. Today, Castle Garden is called Castle Clinton National Monument and serves as the ticket center for ferries to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
