Ellis Island: where over 1.5 million people entered the United States over a period of 75 years. The building was restored in the early 80's as a historically significant place. This room processed 5000 people/day at the height of immigration (the early 1900's).

Hil,
You trip to NY looks amazing. I recognize this location from the movie Hitch--I glean all my historical knowledge from movies:)

Hillay,
A part of "National Treasure" was filmed here. First thing I thought of when I saw that pic was the movie.
