Beginning in the 18th century, many immigrants came from Europe, significantly changing the structure of New York City as the migrants served as workers to industries. New York City blossomed during the economic and building boom following the Great Depression and World War II. Throughout New York City's history, it has served as a central port of entrance for many immigrants while its sociological and economic influence has made it one of the most important metropolitan areas in the United States and the world. From a pizza slice, to Times Square, the bright lights of Broadway to a slice of Cheesecake from Junior’s, the Big Apple will be an unforgettable Educational Destinations adventure.
