Ellis Island

Ellis Island is located about one mile southwest of Manhattan in Upper New York Bay. From 1892 to 1943, it was the main immigration station for the United States of America. For many thousands of immigrants traveling en route to Ellis Island, the towering Statue of Liberty provided the first glimpse of their new home. For many, this sight dramatically heralded their liberation from the suffering and oppression that they had endured in their native countries.
