Address Ellis Island United States

Located 900 meters from the Statue of Liberty, at the mouth of the Hudson River, Ellis Island straddles two states.

The natural part is in New York and the artificial part in New Jersey. It was in 1892 that the federal immigration center opened its doors. Immigrants were previously received at Fort Clinton and Castle Clinton, at Battery Park, at the southern end of Manhattan.

About 14 million people passed through these buildings until the center closed in 1954. The majority were Europeans, but there were also travelers from the Ottoman Empire and the Arabian Peninsula. The first immigrant to arrive was a 15-year-old girl named Annie Moore who came from Cork, Ireland, to join her family. She was given a special welcome by the city and presented with a $10 gold coin. Sixty-two years later, the last person to pass through Ellis Island, with the exception of war refugees and deportees, was a Norwegian merchant named Arne Peterssen.
