Liberty Island & Ellis Island

Come hear their stories.

Day 1

Visiting Liberty Island is one of the most rewarding experiences of any trip to New York City. Ask yourself, how far would you travel to find a better life? How much would you sacrifice in order to provide for your family? If you answered "whatever it takes," you echo the attitudes of the 12 million immigrants who passed through these now quiet halls from 1892 to 1954. Ellis Island afforded them the opportunity to attain the American dream for themselves and their descendants.
