Inside the Manhattan Hotel That’s the New Ellis Island

From a New York Times story by Joseph Goldstein headlined “Inside the Manhattan Hotel That Is the New Ellis Island”:

They give their information — where they’ve come from, and their ultimate destination — and they strip down for a medical examination. They rest and hold their children tight.
