|New York skyline from Liberty Island|
First on my agenda: The statue of liberty!
The statue of liberty and Ellis IslandI met a fun Korean girl in my dorm who had her mind set on the same thing. We went there pretty early, (early for me anyway) and was there at about 9.30. The line for the boat to Liberty Island was already pretty long. We stood in line for about half an hour before we were on our way. Some crazy athletic kids made a living out of entertaining the crowd while we were in line though, waiting has never been more fun!

From Liberty Island, Ellis Island museum of immigration is just a ferry ride away. The museum area is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. It gives a thorough picture of the immigrants who arrived at the nation's busiest immigrant station between 1892 to 1954. Who knows, maybe you'll find a relative's name and history somewhere?
