on Jun. 1, 2007 by

My family decided to pay a visit to Ellis Island where many new immigrants used to land before entering the United States, the highlight was the Statue of Liberty and the skyline of New York City.

My mother, grandma and myself took the boat for a day trip to the Statue of Libery and Ellis Island.

The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy.

The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986. Afterwards the boat dropped us off at Ellis Island. Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States as the site of the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 to 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.

It became part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965, and since 1990, hosts a museum of immigration run by the National Park Service. A 1998 United States Supreme Court decision found most of the island to be part of New Jersey.
