“the island of hope & tears”

From 1892 to 1924, Ellis Island was America's largest and most active immigration station, where over 12 million immigrants were processed. On average, the inspection process took approximately 3-7 hours. For the vast majority of immigrants, Ellis Island truly was an "Island of Hope" - the first stop on their way to new opportunities and experiences in America. For the rest, it became the "Island of Tears" - a place where families were separated and individuals were denied entry into this country.

We visited Ellis Island the same day we went to see The Statue of Liberty. The Museum allows you to join the story of thousands of migrants that moved there. You can get very emotional when you see the amount of people that were involved in this separation. The tour guides feed your mind with information very well explained.

The state of the island could be in a better condition. This place is a sanctuary for all these people that lived there.

Despite all this, the tour is great and you will truly become strongly involved with the island's history.
