Hotel New York, Rotterdam

Built in 1901, Hotel New York housed the Holland Amerika Line (the Nederlandsche-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij).

Many immigrants stayed here as a leg on their journey from the Netherlands, Germany and Eastern Europe to North America.

People bought a complete package which include train journey to Rotterdam, accommodation in the port city and passage to America.

It's now a hotel and restaurant.
