Ellis Island

The port of America.

Also known as the ‘Port of America’, this is where emigrants from Europe and the rest of the world would come through in the 1900s, in search of the ‘American Dream’. This is where the immigration offices and checkpoints were once located and was an extremely important place, due to the fact that North America was established by emigrants. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Statue of Liberty, although you will surely recognise it from numerous films, including its most famous role in The Godfather II. You can get here by boat, and we recommend combining your visit with a trip to the Statue of Liberty. The whole island revolves around the museum, which was once the offices and is one of the best museums the city has to offer.
