Ellis Island & Central Park
Ellis Island is an island in New York Harbor and was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 until 1954. The island was greatly expanded with landfill between 1892 and 1934. Before that, the much smaller original island was the site of Fort Gibson and later a naval magazine. Central Park is a public park at the center of Manhattan in New York City, United States. /5

How have I been to New York City many of times and actually "lived" there for about 4 months total but have never been to Central Park, the Empire State Building, on Ellis island, Rockefeller Center, Coney Island, St Patricks Cathedral, or 5th Avenue. Looks like a trip is needed, *** it!
Jere and Glen had a great 51st anniversary trip to New York. They first visited Niagara Falls for two days and then on to New York for five days. They stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in Niagara called The Elizabeth House. It was as the name implies a home built in the early 1900’s. The owners were very warm, caring and very helpful in what sights that were a “must see”. The Falls are so beautiful, especially from the Canada side. On the American side you just get a side view of the falls, but on Canadian side you get a full view of all three falls. Glen & Jere did some shopping in Canada, as well as, the sight-seeing. In NY they went to Staten Island, climbed to the crown (all 357 steps) of the Statue Of Liberty and visited Ellis Island. They traveled all around Manhattan on a Hop on Hop off bus seeing the 9-11 Memorial, Empire State Bldg., Central Park, Harlem, Rockefeller Center, and United Nations. Jere felt like a rabbit because she hopped on and off so much. They stayed at the Crown Plaza ...
Enjoy each moment... You never know when it's your last! I had the most awesome Easter in NYC. Beautiful day. Started early, walking to parks with Kirsten Schroeder and her pup. All the New Yorkers up early and at the parks. Lit a few candles at The Church of Notre Dame. Fresh bakery and coffee. Then Aaron and I spent the whole day riding around NYC on bikes, from Columbia to Central Park, braved the rush traffic on 7th ave, thru Time Square, Madison Square Garden, Wall St. Ground Zero, lunch at our favorite pub, visit Battery Park, saw Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island and then the marathon finished with a return ride back on the bike path near the Hudson. We wore ourselves out but had a good car ride back to Jersey. Great bonding time with Aaron, he goes away to school in the fall and we want to enjoy each moment of his last year of high school. I'm so blessed and thankful... Awesome friends, wonderful son and great memories...living in the now and enjoying each moment.

NYC, the greatest city on earth, Central Park, The Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, The Intrepid, everything you could possibly want to see, and yet there are freaks that are part of these weird underground sex clubs, they put a rubber ball in their mouth and a rope around their nuts. why? no one knows. on the other side, you can only see the Statue Of Liberty every so often

Okay so planning our Washington DC trip, super excited. And we are debating if we want to hop on the Amtrak and go into New York for a day or two! Gah! I am getting so excited about this mini vacation. I can not wait to see Lincoln's hat at the Smithsonian and the Lincoln Memorial, Ella wants to see the dinosaurs and the Washington Memorial (my dad told her about it and now she is excited to see it) and THE WHITE HOUSE! GAH! I am such an American History nerd. I am so excited. And if we go to New York I, of course, want to see the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, but I also want to see Kleinfeld's, Odessa and have borscht that Craig Ferguson talks about, and the Museum of Tolerance. Going to be the best before school trip ever! Not that I have ever really gone on a before school starts trip before but still! YAY!
Just booked our hotel for NYC in August (belated anniversary gift to one another), so that and the flights are taken care of and been working on an itinerary, but we all know that sometimes you cannot stick to the plan and we really only have 2 full days. Weather could be a factor, but I sure hope we can get at least 1 picnic in Central Park and, hopefully, we can get day-of Broadway tickets for our first night there and would like to see the new 911 memorial. Have been there before and did most of the other "tourist" stuff, Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, on/off bus tour of the city, Times Square, shopping in Soho, saw Brooklyn with Danelle, did Rockefeller Plaza and the zoo in Central Park. Hope it all works this time as originally booked these flights over a year ago hoping to see Reds vs Mets and Yankees and did not get to make that trip, so hoping for much better luck this time. The baseball trip can wait for the future.
Day 2 in New York City with Val ,Jared and Erik Staton! We saw Harlem, Grenwich Village, Soho, Chinatown, Madison Square Garden, Times Square, Central Park, Grants Tomb, Ellis Island and the Statue Of Liberty, Empire State Building and so much more! This after noon while riding on top of a double decker bus the sky opened up and it poured. Getting of the bus we had to walk over a mile to get back to our hotel. The streets immediately started to flood .in some places up to Val's knees as her and the boys were trying to push me in the wheelchair. We had a blast and can't wait for more fun tomorrow !

Airbus a380 double decker was good quite and yes it bounces when air turblence hits. Took 1.5 hours to get through customs in LA and that was with a express pass. An ancient old 747 with Qantas to New York. Very rough landing in JFK flaps put up late and almost ran into ocean well it felt like that. Luggage fell put of lockers when we hit tarmack. Interesting Subway ride was rush hour and was crazy, so many people. Host is fantastic in a great location in a very multicultural but mainly Dominican Republic area, more spanish than english spoken. Enjoying NYC a bit cold still a lot of snow on the side walks from the blizzard. Subway is crazy quick and packed like sardines. At least my stop is mainly express so quick and skips a lot of stations. Seen Rockerfeller Observation deck, Museum of Modern art, Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, Staten Island via ferry as can get to Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island. Have just finished seeing American Museum of Natural Science. Off to see Chrysler building, Grand Centra ...

Just got back from a week in New York City. Walked a lot, saw two plays, two musicals, boat rides to Liberty Island (Statue closed) and Ellis Island, and a twilight cruise around Manhatten, went to several museums (including the MOMA, Met, Cloisters, Fraunces Tavern, and Guggenheim), tourist sites (including the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock and the 9-11 memorial), walked across Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge (not on the same day), food tour in the East Village, walking tour in Greenwich Village, went through the Garment District and was overwhelmed, and ate a lot of good food.

Got tickets for "Book of Mormon" and "Once" . any other suggestions of sights to see? We plan on visiting the 911 Memorial, Empire State Building, Central Park, 5th Ave for shopping...Carlo's Bakery in NJ.so MUCH to see!!
Didn't get to go for the cruise past Liberty and Ellis Island, we apparently went to the wrong stop to take use to the pier but will be looking forward to doing it right tomorrow. Pretty much covered Brooklyn, Harlem, Manhattan, Little Italy, China Town, East Village, Soho, Central Park, Battery Park and TriBeCa, so pretty full day. Need the cruise and Grand Central Station yet. Been a good and busy trip so far.
What a great weekend in NYC Harold and I had, visiting with Luke and Christine! They have a lovely apartment (4 flights up - no elevator- like hiking a mountain!) and they kindly spent all of Saturday showing us the sights:) Had a stroll thru Central Park in the am and took the subway to Battery Park so we could board the ferry for Ellis Island. Was amazed to think of my ancestors making the voyage and passing through that building to start a new life. Capped the night off at a comedy club downtown - it was hilarious. New York City is the BEST:)
I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had with Kai in NYC. He introduced us to so many marvelous things, lots of different foods, the PLAY on Broadway "Once", the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the tours of Manhattan, Central Park, meeting his friends, Ellis Island, the Statue Of Liberty, Times Square, neighborhood groceries and coffee shops and pastry shops, flower stands, the Empire State Bldg, taxi rides, the subway, the limo pick-up at the airport, and I could just go on and on. THANK YOU, KAI. YOU MADE OUR TRIP A TRIP OF A LIFETIME. I LOVE YOU!
I'm so geeked right now, had a meeting at school tonight reguarding the 8th grade field trip 4 days in NYC !

"Q 5690: Which city is home to Ellis Island, Central Park and Washington Square?
We have been fortunate to see so many things in New York. Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, 911 memorial, Empire State Building, MOMA (blah, sorry artists), Museum of Natural History, the Broadway play, Wicked, Wax Museum, Ripley's believe it or not, Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square (craziness), China Town, Little Italy, Wall Street, Central Park (tomorrow) and so much more. Today we had the famous Frozen Hot Chocolate. So much to do, so little time. I will love bringing Allen back here sometime.
Saw 911 Memorial site, New York harbour cruise with Ellis Island and Lady Liberty and lots of time on the subway once we figured out the connections. Went to South side of Central Park but going back tomorrow as it takes 5 hours to walk around. NY is great thus far.
Yesterday consisted of Central Park, Museum of Natural Art & The Metropolitan Museum. Today is the 9/11 Memorial, Stanton Island Ferry around Ellis Island to see the Statue Of Liberty, then to Queens to see Bugsy Siegel's Memorial. Should be a good day.

New York was amazing. Times Square, Central Park with Strawberry Fields [Memorial to John Lennon] Statue Of Liberty, tour with history of Ellis Island, going up to the 86th floor of the Empire State Bldg at night, but the most memorable was the 9-11 Memorial with the pools and the new towers going up! Also loved shopping on 5th Ave, China Town and Little Italy. Stayed at an old art deco hotel 1/2 block from Times Square and at Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Surely want to go again!
Exciting couple of days. Yesterday we visited the Statue Of Liberty and the Ellis Island. got to stop at each. found where our grandfather cam over when he was 17 years old in 2004. From ther we took a carriage ride in Central Park and saw many places that were popular in movies. ended our day at the "Top of the Rock" at Rockefeller Center. today was a blast. toured Radio ?City Music Hall. Beautiful hall. Would love to go to a performance there. got to go up to "Roxy's Room" - this is where Rockefeller entertained the stars that performed in the hall. then we toured NBC studios and saw the stages for Saturday Night Live, the Today Show, and where Brian Williams does the news. Went to St. Patrick's Cathedral where they are doing a 175million renovation. It is amazing to see. Not trying to brag - this is once in a lifetime trip for us. Off to Connecticut tomorrow. Miss everyone

Had a really fun day in NYC today. Took the ferry out to the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island, came back to the main land, did some touring around on the double decker bus, got off the bus in several places, actually went to the Central Terminal for the first time, really a beautiful building, walked around Central Park, Bryant Park, and of course, Times Square. Did so much walking, my feet need to go to bed so I can start all over bright and early in the morning. Think I'm going to start my day in the Fashion District, then on to Rockefeller Center to see what else I can buy!!! Love NY!
Ok guys today we did. Staten Island Ferry Battery Park Liberty Island Ellis Island China Town And Little Italy Tomorrow our really last day Our plans are Colney Island and Central Park. I believe we have squeezed in as much as we could in our Real 5 days. We did good!

Recap of our 3 day NYC vacation we visited Wax Museum, Time Square, Rockefeller Plaza, ferry ride to Statue Liberty & Ellis Island, Empire State, 911 Memorial, and biked thru Central Park!
So great to be home after a very nice vacation! Stayed in NJ at Wyndham Gardens. Met Rich's family, then spent 3 days in New York City. Visited 9-11 Memorial and World Trade Center, took ferry out to Ellis Island and Statue Of Liberty, visited Time Square, rode through Central Park with a personal tour guide, and went to a Broadway show (Jersey Boys - story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.) Rode the Subway (Yikes!) Shopping too, of course, and Bubba Gump's. Then went to Gettysburg for a couple of days on our way home. Loved, loved, loved the tour of the battlefields, Gettysburg Cemetery and museums. Stood where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. So worth the time spent!! But - there's no place like home!
Last 8 hours in NY. We did almost everything we wanted to do except visit Central Park & Ellis Island. Trying to conjure up motivation to get body moving. So far, body is resisting!
Good morning! Yesterday was a beauty of a day. Visited Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island and Central Park with other...
Did a hop on-hop off tour today on the double decker buses around Downtown NY. Got to see the Statue Of Liberty, Wall Street, Ellis Island, Rockefeller Plaza, Grand Central Station, and enjoyed a late lunch at the Olive Garden in Times Square. Was a pretty full on (and amazing) day, so am going to take it a little easier tomorrow with a visit to Central Park and a few of the museums near by.
Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful birthday greetings! My daughters Jeanna and Julie and I went to NY for my birthday-from June 9 through 12. We had a great time and saw The Best Man, Spiderman, Other Desert Cities and Nice Work If You Can Get It. Went to statue, Ellis Island, /11 memorial, took a carriage ride in Central Park, ate at B. Smith's, Becco, John's Pizza. Great fun!
Central Park in NYC has a lot more hills than I thought it would have.Now off to ellis island and the Statue Of Liberty
So, I have had a wonderful blessed time with lots of great friends and their families. I flew into NY. We saw Times Square, Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the new World Trade Center buildings. We drove by Central Park before heading down to Virginia. We played at Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown as well as Busch Gardens for the whole week. We then headed down to Salisbury Md where I met up with my old high school friends, Jennifer Mellen Yancey, Melissa Taylor Darling, Jennifer Langley, Bjorn Kasper, Amanda Fosmire. Together we hung out at the pool and caught up, did All you can eat Crabs!, drove to Ocean City for the boardwalk and the beach, had a great bbq at Melissa and Tommy's house, and did Assateague where we saw Wild ponies and spent time on the beach. The Kasper clan headed to the Baltimore Aquarium with us before heading down to The Broadway diner to meet again with Jennifer Mellon and Jennifer Langley and were surprised to find Teresa Oldewurtel-Schriver. After a great meal w ...
ok, getting ready for Hudson/NYC! Part 1: Henrique/Elizabeth wedding (you know, like a 4 day Brazilian wedding) in Hudson; it will be beautiful just like the bride and groom! Then Part 2: on to the city to meet up with Sister Sher and Beth and Suz! Top of the Rock, Mama Mia, 9/11 Memorial, Ellis Island, Jersey Boys, eating, shopping, Central Park, and dinner at the Hauptmann's! I need my Lucy vitamegamins!
I lay in bed this morning wondering what good deed I could perform when I thought of my sister Lin and that over the past few months how poorly she had been and not her usual self "I know I will give her a ring - that should cheer her up - a bit of the old fraternal love" So I leapt from from my abode of bleary eyed sleep and flowed down the stairs my hear full of grace and what should I find on the doormat? A post card!! What joy!! A rare beast. New York. Who is it from? "Hi Mike New York is very busy + noisy + wet .saw Ground Zero.went to Ellis Island .saw Statue Of Liberty.Central Park.one more day & then San Franscisco on Friday love Lin x" Guess she must be feeling better.!!
Spent a week in NYC and saw a show on Broadway (The Lion King)! Went bike riding in Central Park, Took a water taxi across the Hudson River (where the US Air plane went down), rode the subways,and also the yellow taxis--which was an experience! Went shopping on Canal Street in Chinatown, toured the NBC studios and almost made it onto the Dr. Oz show audience. Of course saw the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island by ferry boat, Wall St. district, the WTC/post 9-11 site (AWESOME even in rain);saw the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, Madame Toussand's Wax Museum and took pictures with President Obama and the First Lady/Whoopi Goldberg/Samuel Jackson/Lucille Ball/Denzel Washington and several others-LOL! You actually had to touch their skin to see if it was warm, that's how REAL & lifelike they were!! The! food was fantastic in Little Italy! And of course we walked around all of Times Square! Went to Queens and took the train back over to Manhattan, where we stayed at the Carlton on Madison Avenue. So includin ...
New York City made it's face shineth on Cindy, Mary Beth & me. We had a wonder filled time. No flowers, no trees unless you go to Central Park where I found my beloved lilacs, but such vibrancy and life. From the unimaginable Times Square to the people on the subway it defies description. The most touching time was our visit to Ground 0 and St. Paul's Chapel where weary rescue workers slept on cots. I fell apart inside when I saw the fence I'd seen so many times on television, where New Yorkers left flowers and pictures of lost loved ones. I had expected to be touched by Ellis Island & the incredible Statue Of Liberty. We had fun in the Beer Garden at the Battery. St. Patrick's Cathedral was too beautiful for words, Mary Beth lit a candle for our lost Savannah. I'm here to tell you New Yorkers are not rude, unless a situation occurs where direction is needed. In fact they are fighting to change their image of being uncaring. I had many conversations with them on the subway, in elevators and even heard the ...
Had a Wonderful time in New York City,,, We took the Ferry over to Statue Of Liberty an Ellis Island and had lunch,, then we hopped on the Subway and went to the 911 Memorial, we went for a stroll in Central Park, supper on Time Square. We had an Absolutely Wonderful Day,,, Fun, Food and Adventure with My Best Friend and Sons I couldn't ask for more.. I am Blessed.
Does anyone have some suggestions for things to see & do in NY over a long weekend? Probably not going to do much shopping or hit museums (will eat away too much time). Was thinking about Central Park, Top of the Rock or Empire St. Bldg., Times Square, maybe Ellis Island. Any other reccos?
Taking the family to NYC and staying on Park Ave for a week. Hope we have great weather. Hitting the Brooklyn Zoo, Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island, Times Square, Central Park, grab a Broadway show, and of course go see 1 World Center. As of today it is the tallest building in NYC. Just a remembrance to those that perished on that dreadful day in our history and of those that perished during 10+ years of war. Hopefully, I can get a little sleep!!!
Thanks! We will enter via Central Park, dance on Broadway, & crown our royalty on Ellis Island with Lady Liberty.
Busy day today! Statue Of Liberty/Ellis Island, The Met, Central Park, 5th Ave, more China Town, ah!
yeah I'm only going there for Broadway, Central park, Ellis Island, The Zoo, Statue Of Liberty and SHOPPING!
