#1: CASTLE GARDEN; tHE SHIPSLIST WEBSITE Author: charliemis, Location: PhiladelphiaPosted: Thu Feb 05, 2009 9:51 pm ---- after watching Ellis Island (the series is on PBS, but with lots of the same shots in each episode) I was curious about Castle Garden which processed Immigrants arriving in NYC before Ellis Island.....the link below shows a picture and some data on Castle Garden and is on the "Ships list" website which has other good data about arriving ships.

I was sooo disappointed. I am hoping it shows up on the internet somewhere..maybe U tube.
Was it any good? The link you posted is great...thanks!
