It’s a wall. It’s made of steel. It was built because immigrants kept coming.
But it’s not the wall you’re thinking of.
We’re talking about the American Immigrant Wall of Honor at Ellis Island: 770 stainless steel panels engraved with the names of about 775,000 immigrants.
Each name on the wall was paid for by one of those immigrants’ family or friends.
“They want to honor the people who came before them at the site of that person’s first steps in America,” said Stephen A. Briganti, president of the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation Inc.
The monument serves as both tribute to immigrants and fund-raiser for the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration and the Statue of Liberty. In the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan wanted to preserve the site, but without spending taxpayer money. The solution: build a wall and charge people to add names to it. It opened in 1990.
It costs 0 to put one name on the wall and 5 for two names, with more expensive options as well (because this is, still, New York City). So far, the wall has raised more than million.
The wall is filling up — the number of inscriptions rose sharply in 2017 and again last year. There are only five empty panels left, enough for about 3,300 names.
The kinds of names placed on the wall have shifted. At first, they were mostly immigrants who had passed through Ellis Island, “primarily Eurocentric,” Mr. Briganti said.
More recently, there has been an uptick in names from Latin America, Africa and Asia. Also, the museum expanded its focus to include “those who endured forced migration from slavery,” and the “earliest settlers, the American Indian,” the foundation’s website says.
Despite the federal shutdown, you can still visit the wall, along with the rest of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. New York State and private donors have been keeping them open. As of Tuesday, National Park Service’s recreation fees, along with private donors, are keeping them open.Best of The Times

That’s how many tourists visited New York City in 2018, a record high.
The figure is expected to rise again in 2019, thanks to the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, and WorldPride celebrations, slated for this June. My colleague Patrick McGeehan has the story.

She sang. She tweeted. She conquered.
Rachel Zegler was, until last month, a typical — if overly talented — high school teenager in New Jersey.
Then on Dec. 14, she tweeted a 30-second clip of herself singing a song from “A Star Is Born.”
Her singing was so good, Ms. Zegler has now been cast to play Maria in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming remake of “West Side Story,” reportedly beating out 30,000 others who auditioned.
The classic Romeo and Juliet story set in New York begins filming this summer.
If you want to better acquaint yourself with Ms. Zegler before her film debut, look no further than the Twitter feed that launched her to stardom.
You can find her singing a song from the Broadway musical “ Waitress,” or the song “Sonya Alone” from “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.”0
Ms. Zegler also likes to dress as stage and screen characters for Halloween: Michael Scott from “The Office;” Robert Downey Jr.’s character in “Iron Man;” and the lovable, gruff Luke Danes from “Gilmore Girls.”
As for “West Side Story,” Ms. Zegler has said she never could have imagined playing such a prominent role. She did, however, have ideas about who should play Maria (and Tony, and Riff, and Anita and all the Sharks and Jets).
It’s Wednesday — your big break is coming soon.Metropolitan Diary: Pith helmet
It was a hot, humid August afternoon in 1974, the summer between my sophomore and junior years in college. I was working as a bank messenger, traveling between branches to pick up the day’s records for delivery to the bank’s computer center.
I was on an uptown No. 4 train with the guy who would succeed me. I was training him before I went back to school. He was wearing a pith helmet to combat the heat and humidity.
New York City’s subway cars typically lacked air-conditioning in those days, and the windows would often be opened to allow the occasional breeze.
That was the case in the car that my successor and I were on. We were sitting on a long bench seat, open windows over our heads.
The train pulled into the Wall Street station. Passengers got off and passengers got on and the car doors closed. And then, as the train lurched forward, a hand reached through an open window and snatched the pith helmet off my colleague’s head.
Everyone in the car was silent, stunned by the brazenness of what had just happened. And then everyone in the car broke into laughter and applause at the nerve and dexterity required to carry out such a masterful theft.
