Making Their Mark: From German
Immigrants to New York City Icons

Steve Zehentner:  Writer, Director, Co-editor, Street Videography and Co-Producer
in collaboration with Todd Weinstein and Peter Norrman/PROSPEKT

In this film, you'll meet descendants of the families who created three enduring New York City icons:  The John Roebling family and the Brooklyn Bridge, the Lazarus Straus family and Macy's department store, and the Heinrich Steinway family and the Steinway piano factory.  Assimilating into an American mainstream they helped create, their lives are representative of the thousands of German-American families who have made their mark on New York City.  A project for the German Consulate General New York.
