So according to my planned itinerary today we are exploring the Ellis Island and the world famous National Monument The statue of Liberty.There is so much history behind this monument and when the tour guide was explaining it i was busy taking pictures so i haven't heard a word.Only i know that this famous monument was a gift by the people of France to the people of United States and it was also designed by a France sculptor.
The ferry takes you to Ellis Island from Liberty. It has national museum of immigration, The American immigrant wall of honor and American family immigration center. Entry to the Ellis Island is included with Ground only ticket.
Over 12 million immigrants entered the US through Ellis Island, the nation's principal gateway during the years 1892-1954. Following restorations in 1980s, the building reopened as a museum dedicated to the nation's immigration heritage. A must visit for those interesting in knowing more about over 4 centuries of immigration history to America. 2nd and last stop of the ferry ride before we reach back NYC
