Mapping markers of distance and existence in immigrant literature of New York City.

developing the map

The markers across this map pinpoint places named in individual immigrant narratives. While each of these alone work to ground the literature, all of the points together provide space for the immigrant experience in New York City.

Each marker offers a place mentioned in a literary work. Each entry will offer the title and author of the book, along with some context. Many also include direct quotes to the text! Check the bookshelf for each of these titles.
