• Ellis Island | New York, NY | 10004

Ellis Island,a small island in New York Harbor, was the official immigration portal to the United States from 1892-1954. Depending upon an immigrant's social status, Ellis Island variously became known as the "Island of Hope" or the "Island of Tears." Affluent immigrants were expeditiously processed with little inspection while those of lower economic station often subjected to a more rigourous immigration process. The island, no longer used in this capacity, now features the Immigration Museum and has been designated with park status.
