Ellis Island

Hotels near Ellis Island, New York, United States .

The United States is truly a melting pot country, and there has been no city in the entire country that has been the gateway for more immigrants than New York. Ellis Island was the grand turnstile for those seeking a better life in a new land, the tired and poor from faraway lands. Between 1892 and 1954, Ellis Island was the main entry facility for all immigration, and currently acts as a crucial historical landmark, as well as a non-profit organization that helps Americans research their lineage.

Over 12 million immigrants were naturalized at Ellis Island, which is technically halfway in New York and halfway in New Jersey. The busiest year for immigrants at Ellis Island was 1907, wen over a million immigrants came to try their luck at a life in the United States.

Ellis Island was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, along with such important buildings like The Statue of Liberty, back in 1966. It's possible to visit Ellis Island today, and to learn all about the history of the immigration process in New York, as well as personal accounts from regular immigrants, as well as some of the more famous arrivals to Ellis Island, like Isaac Asimov the writer, Frank Capra the Italian film director, and famous Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi.

Ellis Island is open daily, and the research center is reachable by email and phone all of the time. Some of the closest hotels to Ellis Island are The Cosmopolitan Hotel, the Embassy Suites Hotel New York City, and the SoHo Grand Hotel.
