Take a tour of Ellis Island in New York City – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
Situated next to Liberty Island, in New York Harbor, is the once bustling immigration port of Ellis Island.
Largely created with landfill this national treasure now has an area of over 27 acres.
An incredible number of United States citizens, nearly half according to some sources, can follow their family history back to Ellis Island.
Beaux-arts architecture, popular in the late 19th century, was the inspiration behind the creation of this stunning structure.
Visitors can take the journey of our ancestors through the grand hallways of the present day Immigration Museum.
The history and magnificence of Ellis Island make it one of America’s most coveted landmarks.
This 1946 film describes the history and process of European immigration to the United States until 1924 when a restrictive immigration bill was passed. Produced by Encyclopedia Britannica, there is a mixture of actual footage, maps showing the flow of immigration, and reenactments. In one such reenactment, footage captures a scene from a European steamship office that shows the different motivations and immigration issues - religious, political, or economic, that may have driven many Europeans to emigrate. Scenes of Jews being turned out of their houses and of people laboring in fields further illustrates this point. There are also many great scenes from Ellis Island and New York City, including documentation lines, doctor examinations, immigration and naturalization services, and city tenements. This is a nice Ellis island history video, which details the immigration experience. The film notes that these immigrants were helped by the trade unions to learn to work together. Newly naturalized citizens are shown raising their right hands in front of a judge in a courtroom, and the film ends by showing a panning shot of the Statue of Liberty. Typical of the time period, the film glosses over the concerns of Native Americans and immigrants who weren't white. But this only serves to make the film more historically enlightening, as an exploration of racism in American history. But mainly the film is full of great Ellis Island immigration stories.

NOT YOUR PARNETS TRAVEL GUIDE!
Barbara meets up with native New Yorker, Vitoria, an aspiring actress, and asks her what itâs like to be a young actor trying to make it in a huge city. Vitoria says she gets much of her inspiration from New Yorkâs landscape, and would be happy to show Barb the sites.
From the bow of the ferry heading toward the Statue of Liberty and the Ellis Island Museum, Vitoria explains New York is the city where many people come to live their dreams and pursue their passion in the arts. In the Drama Bookshop, the girls flip through books on auditioning techniques and rehearsing. Since Barb is going to try her hand at stage acting later on, Vitoria takes her to Drama Workshop, where they do an improv exercise with a local actor. They stop to refuel in Chinatown and grab dessert in Little Italy before heading across the Brooklyn Bridge and passing by some more famous landmarks, like the towering UN and Empire States buildings. At the P.S. 1 Arts Center in Queenâs, the girls take in a visual art exhibit.
Since Barb is feeling a bit nervous about her fast-approaching performance, Vitoria tries to calm her nerves with a cup of java at Luna Park CafÃ©, where many celebrities hang out. Vitoria buys some stage makeup and Barb tries on wigs at Rickyâs Chain Store before they head to The Black Box Theatre, where Barb is introduced to some of the actors in the Fringe production. Vitoria impresses Barb with her performance, so much so that Barb presents her co-host with tickets to the Broadway show, Wicked! The girls watch the show at the Gershwin Theatre and are taken on a backstage tour by one of the actors after the show. On the giant stage, Barb performs a unique soliloquy. Now she feels the old adage about New York is true: âIf you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.â
