Since peoples from around the globe began to come to America, Hoboken has always been a popular destination for immigrants. People migrated from Ireland, Germany, Italy, Russia, Puerto Rico and other countries to the city, hoping to find opportunity and prosperity for themselves and their families in America. Using Hoboken as a point of entry, many ultimately chose to remain in the Mile Square City. As they struggled to establish themselves, immigrants clashed with one another and with native-Hobokenites as they influenced the city’s politics, economics, religions and customs. Author Christina A. Ziegler-McPherson explores their struggles and the complicated conflicts that have influenced the ethnic and cultural environments of this New Jersey city.

I bought the book for a very dear friend who left his home in Italy as a child and finally set up home in Hoboken.
My friend loves to talk about his childhood there, the people who were his neighbours etc.
This book I hope will remind him of things he has forgotten as it covers many topics
