Ellis Island immigration station, 1905, where 12 million immigrants to the US were processed between 1892 and 1924.

From the Ellis Island data base: my uncle Theodore H (Ted) Lustig, entering the US in 1938 and again in 1952 and 1957

My uncle Ted with my father in Paris, 1946 (left), and in Berlin, 1992 (right)

My uncle's first New York home on Central Park West. A one-room apartment cost him $7 a week.

Moving up in the world: 323 W 100th Street, just off Riverside Drive

And so to the Bronx: 2676 Grand Concourse. Cheaper, but bigger, than W 100th St -- a mere $50 a month.
