The New-York Historical Society is proud to welcome hundreds of new U.S. citizens by serving as a host for naturalization ceremonies conducted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. At special ceremonies that take place in our Robert H. Smith auditorium, these new citizens pledge themselves to their new nation with the Oath of Allegiance. They come from dozens of countries around the world—from Algeria to Yemen, from Mexico to Malaysia—and are united in their hopes for a better life for themselves and their families.
