Monument to the Immigrant

In New Orleans for a conference, I was jogging along the banks of the Mississippi, when I came upon this Monument to the Immigrant.

A white Carrara marble monument created by local sculptor Franco Allesandrini. It is dedicated to the courageous men and women who left their homeland seeking freedom, opportunity and a better life in a new country.

On one side, Miss Liberty faces the mighty Mississippi, while an immigrant family faces the French Quarter, where most immigrants lived when they came to this area.

Nice.
