I am an Irish farmer but because blight killed all the potatoes am coming to America to get a job because I no longer have food or money.
The boats were very crowded and had harsh conditions. There was not enough food, water, and space for every one so lots of people selpt on top of each other at night.
We have finally made it to Ellis Island!!! But alot of us are worried we hear that if even one of us has small pots they send every one back to Ireland. We have showed our papers and gotten checked and so far so good.
Alot of us live in crowded tenaments and in gethos with alot of people of the smae race. But recently the hull house opened. The hull house was made by Jane Adams. she had a vison after travling to England . In the hull house there was a warm place to make freinds, art /music lessons, and many more things.
Some problems cities faced were overcrowdedness and unsanitary conditions for the new immigrants.
