ClassGraphic Millions of Americans can claim ancestors who came through Ellis Island. This tour will take you through the museum, and will give you a sense as to what those who came to these shores might have experienced at that time. The entry way, luggage depot, the dormitory where some of them spent one or more nights and the imposing Registry Room (Great Hall) are among some of the areas. A short walk around the north side of the complex you will see the remains of Fort Gibson, once a key component for protecting New York Harbor. While there, peruse the American Immigrant Wall of Honor for ancestors names. Time permitting, Mario will help you locate your family’s name on the wall. Lunch can be purchased on the island or you can bring your own. After lunch the tour will continue to the Statue of Liberty. Tickets will grant pedestal access only - no crown access!  This is not a big-bus tour. Mario Medici is a licensed NewYork City tour guide and has studied the island extensively. Mario will provide commentary, while touring the island. Wear good-walking shoes, as a great deal of walking and standing is required.  Note:  There is airport-style security before boarding the ferry, which will require removing shoes, cell phones, watches, etc. and long lines.  Rain date: TBD
