A Life Across The Ocean

This series documents the lives of Irish men and women who made the journey across the Atlantic and found a home in Queens. Many left homes without electricity in the 1940s and 1950s to live in the hustle an bustle of New York City. We learn about the struggles and successes of their lives in America as well as how they maintained strong ties to home.
