A month or so ago we made a trip down to New Jersey and took one day to visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. I feel like I grew up visiting this place. School field trips, family outings, and out of town visitors were all occasions to take the ferry and climb the statue and wander around Ellis Island. I hadn't been back there since before 9/11. I really enjoyed this little adventure and I could appreciate the significance of this place a little more now that I am older.
Picture in the Ellis Island museum depicting an old street in NYC. A lot of the artifacts were missing from the museum. Still in storage from the hurricane a few years ago.
