Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Immigration Museum Photos

The Statue of Liberty (1886) by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi on a base by Richard Morris Hunt is one of the foremost symbols of the United States. Nearby is Ellis Island National Monument (built 1898), a building where 16 million immigrants landed in America. Now it is a museum telling the story of what those immigrants faced. Both are Monuments run by the National Park Service and are served by boats making a circuit from Castle Clinton.
