    First to Review

    I visited Ellis Island on a class trip when I was a kid. As part of our experience we were all processed as if we were immigrants arriving in America! Interesting place to see, especially if you have family members who entered the county through Ellis Island but otherwise I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to go out there to visit unless you have a specific interest in it.

    Historic monument for anybody with immigrant heritage. Worth seeing and honoring the legacy of those who went through this building as they pursed the American Dream.

    Its an interesting place... not nearly as breath taking but just as equally historically rich with the stories of the immigrants who have walked these very grounds. Though I would suggest going on a day that is not too humid... its hard enough trying to focus without the heat to dull my mind.
    ;D
