Ellis Island

Between 1900 and 1914, European immigrants, like those arriving at Ellis Island in New York City, came at a rate of over one million a year. But in 1915, 198,000 had arrived and a year later, only 146,000 while the total number of immigrants was under 300,000. By 1918, only 31,000 Europeans had come and almost as many had left the country.
