Castle Clinton (sometimes called Fort Clinton and previously known as Castle Garden) is a circular sandstone fort located in Battery Park, Manhattan, New York City. Built from 1808 to 1811, it was the first American immigration station, where more than 8 million people arrived in the United States from 1855 to 1890. Located at the southernmost tip of Manhattan Island, Castle Clinton stands where New York City began. It represents not only the city’s growth but the growth of a nation. Initially intended to prevent a British invasion in 1812, the fortification has transformed over the years to welcome theatergoers, immigrants, sightseers, and now, millions of visitors to New York Harbor and history enthusiasts worldwide. Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered this vintage poster art in the style of early 20th-Century travel posters, vintage art, retro designs, and travel illustrations. This classic print will look great as a framed print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, postcard, or notecard.
