Ellis Island - Review

Ellis Island is regarded as one of the most popular attractions in the city of New York. It is located in Manhattan, and is surrounded by famous landmarks like Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building. Today, this island is an immigration museum and is also part of Statue of Liberty National Monument. You can enjoy self guided tours in which you can have a great view of various artifacts, prints, photographs, videos, oral histories, interactive displays, temporary exhibits and much more.

The American Immigrant Wall of Honor exhibits the names of 6,00,000 men and women who passed through Ellis Island on the way to their new home. Ellis Island is a great source of inspiration for the arts including film, literature and music.

History behind Ellis Island is, from 1892 to 1954, Ellis Island was the immigrant gateway to America. More than 12 million people would arrive here on the way to their new life in a new country. Many had little or no money, some were ill; others had family waiting for them on the other side of the gate. The stories are many and varied, but all arrived hoping for something different and better than what they had in their homeland.
