Photographer's Note

As my ferry was approaching Ellis Island, this ferry full of tourists was leaving the Island to New York City. I was surprised to see so many tourists in February.

Ellis Island is an island in New York Harbor. It was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States and was the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 until 1954. The island was greatly expanded with landfill between 1892 and 1934. Before that, the much smaller original island was the site of Fort Gibson and later a naval magazine. The island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965, and has hosted a museum of immigration since 1990. A 1998 United States Supreme Court decision found most of the island to be part of New Jersey.
