Description:

The plaque serves a dual purpose, commemorating Boston’s role as an immigrants’ gateway to the promise of life in America as well as celebrating the immigrants’ reciprocal gift, the cultural enrichment of Boston’s neighborhoods. Conceived by Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, the plaque is affixed to a polished granite stele that stands before the Congress Street entrance to City Hall. The plaque was dedicated in 1991.
