Annie Moore Monument Mar 16, 2013
Annie Moore is a personage associated with the Irish emigration to the Americas like few others. On January 1st 1892, she became the 1st person to enter the USA through the new facility at Ellis island which became a synonym for US immigration of that time. Moore and her two younger brothers, who travelled with her as well, are represented on a memorial which is located close to the place from where once the big ships departed. The thoughtful face of Annie and the enthusiastic expressions in the boys' faces symbolize the hope and the sorrows linked to an emigration such as Annie's. The statue was unveiled on February 9th 1993.
