Ellis Island
Boring and Tilton, architects
Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are national monuments of transcendent importance, fraternal twins celebrating America's immigrant history. The Statue of Liberty offers the ideal: the welcome extended to "the huddled masses yearning to breathe free" immortalized in Emma Lazarus's poem, chiseled in its base. Ellis Island offers the real: the gritty, difficult, miraculous place where millions of immigrants from all corners of the globe entered the New World. Today, one hundred million Americans can trace some part of their family history through Ellis Island. From 1892 to 1953, as many as ten thousand immigrants in a day, some 12 million in all, exhausted from weeks of ocean travel in often hideous conditions, lined up for the inspection that determined whether they would enter the New World - or be sent back home. Both the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island's main building have been stunningly restored, thanks to the vision of the National Parks Service, and the fundraising efforts of the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation.
