Irish Hunger Memorial. New York, United States

If you're looking to touch base with your Irish roots, or simply want to check out an interesting display of landscaping, the Irish Hunger Memorial is an excellent spot to come see.

The multifaceted monument contains a stone tunnel, illuminated with text lines detailing the history of the Great Famine. The tunnel merges into a sloping landscape with a pathway inviting visitors to walk upward. The culmination of the memorial is an overlook displaying stunning views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, emblems of America's welcome to the Irish and to all immigrants. The memorial is devoted to raising public awareness of the events that led to the Great Irish Famine and Migration.
