Total Eclipse of the Sun!
On Monday August 21, 2017, the biggest and best solar eclipse in American history is coming soon to a sky near you. On average, a total eclipse is visible from any one spot on Earth about once every 375 years. That puts fewer than 1 in 1,000 people has ever seen a total eclipse of the sun. The average speed of the moon's shadow as it races from the West Coast to the East is 1,700 mph!
Will Miss Liberty see the eclipse? She will be shaded when 72% of the sun is blocked but she's 571 miles NE of Path of Totality. Enjoy the moment safely if you are anywhere in North America. ... See MoreSee Less

During the month of November, our messaging theme is “Preserving History and Culture” and we will share a few posts to increase awareness of the leading role the National Park Service plays in protecting America’s cultural resources and in the field of historic preservation.
Save Ellis Island is a partner of the NPS and works diligently to complete the rescue of a place and its buildings in an attempt to shed new light on the central part of the American story. Save Ellis Island has brought together preservationists, historians, civic leaders and thousands of average Americans from across the country who share the same goals to honor and celebrate a key part of America’s heritage; rediscover and promote American ideals and build a living institution that will apply the lessons of Ellis Island to future generations.
The restoration of the Outdoor Recreation Shelter and lawn will allow the public to visit the historic interior lawn area comprised of approximately 4 acres of open space plus an additional 3.4 acres of open space adjacent to the lawn. This will allow Save Ellis Island to expand its programs and activities to include use of this large interior courtyard area of the hospital and enable the public to enjoy the magnificent vistas and to view the entire hospital complex, including the infectious and contagious disease wards.
