康尼岛移民遗产之旅 活动介绍:此活动的目的为展现新移民对康尼岛这个“世界游乐场” 历史和推动发展的贡献。该活动举行期间正值2018移民遗产推广周,因此举办方“康尼岛历史计划”为民众特别提供免费步行导游团,望纽约客以及华人踊跃参与。“康尼岛移民遗产之旅”将于4月21日星期六举行,正午12点为英文导游团,下午3点为国语导游团,有兴趣者报名从速。

Among the stops on the tour and the stories of struggle, success and achievement are Nathan's Famous, founded in 1916 by Polish immigrant Nathan Handwerker; Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, where the landmark 1920 Wonder Wheel was purchased by Greek immigrant Denos D. Vourderis as a wedding ring for his wife; and the B&B Carousell, created in 1919 by German and Russian immigrants and now Coney's last hand-carved wooden carousel. The tour will also highlight businesses operated by immigrants who have recorded their stories for the Coney Island History Project's Oral History Archive.

导游团将涵盖康尼岛著名人士与发迹史,亮点包括1916年由波兰移民纳坦汗沃克(Nathan Handwerker)成立的“纳坦的著名热狗”;1920年由希腊移民丹诺斯华得利斯(Denos Vourderis)买下的奇妙摩天轮公园,原来他初衷是送太太这一枚巨型“婚戒”;1919年由德国和俄罗斯移民创造的、现今世上绝无仅有的人手木工制旋转木马等。除了前人历史,这个导游团还会展现康尼岛历史计划采访过的商家故事,当中包括华人商家,鉴古知今。

Coordinated by the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, Immigrant Heritage Week is an annual citywide program of events celebrating the history, traditions and contributions of New York City's diverse immigrant communities. This year's IHW is scheduled for April 16-22 in recognition of April 17, 1907, the date when more immigrants entered the U.S. through Ellis Island than any other date in history. The theme for Immigrant Heritage Week 2018 is "A City of Immigrants: United in Action."

此活动获得市长办公室移民事务组的协作支持。移民遗产推广周是一年一度全市推广移民社区多元化的活动,以纪念每个移民群体的历史、传统及贡献。今年的移民遗产推广周定于4月16至22日,当中的1907年4月17日是美国史上新移民人数最高的日子,他们从纽约的埃利斯岛过关、正式踏足美国国土。而今年的推广周主题为“一个属于移民的城市:联手协作”。
