New York Ellis Island Immigration Station

Looking for the best New York attractions? Located on the upper New York Bay, precisely on the New Jersey side is the Ellis Island with the Ellis Island Immigration Station that you could explore. The Ellis Island was an immigrant inspection station from 1892 to 1954 and more than 12 million immigrants passed through it to start their lives in the US. The 11 hectare island is within a viewing distance of the Statue of Liberty.

Ellis Island was featured in some popular films, such as “X-Men”, “Hitch” starring Will Smith, and older films like “Traffic in Souls” starring Matt Moore. It is the home of the Immigration museum which was built in 1892 and designed by two architects, Edward Lippincott and William Alciphron Boring. Both of them were honored with a gold medal in an architecture competition for the building design. The building was opened as a museum in 1965, and it is one of the main NYC attractions on the island. This museum features a library and a wall outside the building called the “Wall of Honor” where you can see a list of 600,000 immigrants that passed through the island. There are other things to do in NY’s Ellis Island for example, you can enjoy a theatrical production about the life of immigrants.
