I saw it before they moved it to it's current location. It's awesome!

Is that the torch used in Ghostbusters II to break open the top of the museum?

So much quicker and easier to get there from the NJ side! Cheaper parking, too. We love it! 🙂

An extraordinary experience for most newcomers! Please know that we welcome you fully with open arms always!!

Liberty State Park in Jersey City has the Empty Sky 9-11 Memorial...there is also 9-11 Memorial at the Waterfront in Jersey City near PATH terminal and ferry to Hudson Yards in Manhattan as well as the Colgate Clock. The view of WTC and lower Manhattan is beautiful from Liberty State Park and Waterfront.

That’s the one we went on🙌

Envision a sunset with Lady Liberty

If you are visiting the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island in January, you will likely be bundled up for winter weather.
Visitors departing on the final ferry to mainland are often perched along the top deck to capture the iconic statue against amazing sunset colored skies. Reconnect with history in 2020.

Such a wonderful tribute to the ones you love my family put our grandmother‘’s name on the wall a few years ago ❤️

I have relatives inscribed on the wall. I wish that you offered photographs of the inscriptions.

Today we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “During the less than 13 years of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership of the modern American Civil Rights Movement, African Americans achieved more progress toward racial equality in America than the previous 350 years had produced. Dr. King is widely regarded as America’s preeminent advocate of nonviolence and one of the greatest nonviolent leaders in world history.” - Courtesy of The King Center.

Dr. King and his wife, Coretta Scott King, flew from London to New York, landing at Idlewild Airport on March 24, 1957. Below is their plane manifest, searchable in our online database at libertyellisfoundation.org/passenger #MLKDay

Yes, my grandparents and great-grandparents.

To find the Ellis Island Registry Room, or as we call it "The Great Hall", completely empty is so rare! It is an opportunity to take in all the history in this room. On an average day, about 5,000 people from all around the world were welcomed to America right here. Such a special place... Comment below if your ancestors were in this room! 🗽🇺🇸 ...

We go from the Jersey side, take the first boat, and race to the Great Hall - so atmospheric when it’s empty. I swear you can almost hear the voices of those who last through.

They were and my great-grandfather’s photo still hangs in the museum’s baggage room. I’ve been trying to get a copy of the original for some time now. Can you help? Here is the picture from 2019.

Yes. I'm glad I was able to find his record.

My dad and his brothers and sisters were here. Don't know what year but thinking about 1900ish?

My great grandfather Giuseppe Magro. I paid to have his name etched on the wall. Wondering if it has been done so we (my grandfather 86 yrs old) can travel to NYC to see it

My family came through those doors from Verdin, France. I believe in the 40's.

I walked in this room in November 2018, nearly 100 years after my grand-grandparents. I have to say that it was a very very special moment. I was blessed to had the chance to do so. I will come back for sure. The researches about this part of my family history are just starting...

Yes, many came from Slovakia and Poland.

Imiti which later became Emmite💚🤍♥️

My dad came to the USA with his mother and 4 sisters in 1922 from Lithuania on the Stockholm in steerage. He almost got swept overboard. He was 10 years old. Wish I could go and see his name.

Yep!

My Nano in 1908 and my Nana (along with three children) in 1914. On July 9, 2014 (along with my husband, son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter) I stood in that same room 100 years to the day after my Nana. The picture shows me pointing to the Vicario Family name on the Wall of Honor.

My great grandparents came from Slovakia in 1912 to Ellis island. On same boat, but didn't meet each other till 2 years after they arrived!

All 4 of my grandparents were here in the early 1900's. They did not know each other at the time.

When I was there some of the original benches were still in the hall. It was such an extraordinary experience to sit there on those same benches my grandparents sat on when they came to the US.

My great great grandparents and many cousins went through. Vicario, Manente, La Falce and DiMatteo. From Italy

Proud to say...All of my grandparents

Yes, they came here from overseas and I do wish Ellis Island was still open.

My mother arrived from Germany on Jan 17, 1955

My mother and aunt were there! ❤️

Priceless memories 🙏🥰

If the walls could talk!

My maternal family were almost all Magyar from Cséhtélek, Transylvania, Hungary, all coming through Ellis Island -from great, great, great grandparents to my grandparents to my mother and her elder sister who were the first generation of their lineage to be born outside of Hungary. On the other paternal side I have those who came on the Mayflower and in Winthrop's fleet later and others from far flung portions of Europe ... migrants from four of the five continents. So, yes, indeed some of my ancestor's were indeed visitors to this great hall.

Been there many times Memorable

From Sicily 1900’s
