Ellis Island & Ground Zero
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. The term ground zero (sometimes also known as surface zero as distinguished from zero point) describes the point on the Earth's surface closest to a detonation. /5

Man my daughter sent some pics of her trip to us just now. Pics from the top of the Empire State Building and such. I'll share some tomorrow. How cool this trip is for these kids. Today they saw Central Park, Time Square, Greenwich Village etc. tomorrow is Ground Zero, Ellis Island, The Statue Of Liberty and then a broadway show at night. I'm so jealous.
Day 3 NYC was tiresome! Got 2 hours sleep, then left NYC and headed to jersey. Took a ferry from jersey to Ellis Island. Then to Liberty Island. Went in the Statue Of Liberty. Then took a ferry to NYC. Went to Ground Zero which made me feel very sad. Then took a subway and went to China Town. Then went to the Empire State Building and the view was mind blowing!! My feet are killing me and I'm exhausted! Today kicked my butt, but I loved it!!!
Went to Ground Zero, Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island today. Ground Zero was a very sobering experience to say the least. Seeing the play Lion King tonight:)
Lillian, Abby, we are wanting to go to several attractions in NYC, and was wondering if we should order online the tickets for them or if you or Jeffery can order them along with others that may want to go to these attractions as well? Some of the attractions are Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Empire State Building, Madame Tussaud's wax museum, 911 Ground Zero, and maybe the Bronx Zoo.
Today is our last day in NYC and we felt pressed to at least get a glimpse of the most famous tourist attractions, so we took a Gray Line bus tour around Manhattan. We saw a lot of things, including Ground Zero. As part of the package, we got a cruise around NY harbor, viewing the Statue Of Liberty, and Ellis Island. Finally we went up to the observation decks on Rockafeller Center, and wandered down to Times Square. Then we came back to El Barrio and had one of the best meals we've eaten here, and one of the cheapest at San Francisco de Asis Restaraunte on Lexington Ave, just around the corner. The mole sauce was excellent, and they prepared our limade fresh to order.
After Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Wall St, Harlem, China Town, Soho, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Ground Zero, Lincoln Tunnel, Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, Cake Boss, Broadway, Times Square, Manhattan, FAO Schwartz, Stardust Diner, Brooklyn, Grants tomb, George Washington Federal Bldg, Union Square, New Jersey, and everything in between, we are finally back in Texas and ready for some Mexican food!! I'm not sure how managed to see all that but we did!! Way to go Linda Leissner and
Okay folks...I'm fixing to have to make some reservations on the Jersey side of Ellis Island. Can ANYONE give me some pointers on where to stay that don't cost an arm and a leg but is still decent ???
Okay New Yorkers (and New York lovers)! I have a trip planned in September and I need some planning help. The must-do list includes a Broadway show, Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, and shopping. We have 3 full days and two half days. Any other things we should try to do? Where should we stay? Restaurant thoughts? Helpful hints and tips?
I was in New York City for the first time yesterday with my Dad and Stepmom. What a blast!! We were there for the International Photo Expo (which was great) but I also got to see Time Square, Bryant Park and Grand Central Station. We took a water taxi and saw the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue Of Liberty, Ground Zero, Ellis Island, etc. Problem is I got up at 4:45am, then didn't get to bed until 1:00am and Mason decides to get up at 5:00am. It's going to be a long day!! Pictures to come.

Weiling and I visited with our Niece and Nephew, Pam and Ed, and family last week in New York. They invited us to stay in their home and spent time showing us the City. We were able to see such places as Ground Zero, the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Battery Park, China Town, and our favorite place of West Point Military Academy. We would like to thank them for their gracious hospitality and sacrificing of their time. The weather was beautiful and so was our stay with them. My recommendation of a fun family to visit.
So we went to Ground Zero yesterday with our good friends Pastors Joel and Jolanda Wolensky of Macungie, Pa. We had an awesome time! We parked in Statten Island and rode the ferry for free right past Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. When we arrived in Manhattan, we walked to Wall Street and took pictures of the Exchange and the big Bull. We also took a few shots of the Federal Hall where our country was founded. Then we walked over to St. Paul's Chapel where George Washington prayed with our country's founders. We photographed the place where the Sycamore tree once stood that blocked the beam that came in from the Towers; it is now replaced with a evergreen. This evergreen sits on the edge of the grounds closest to where the Towers once stood. I had several very interesting encounters with Lubavitchers. Chabad are very evangelistic and only go after "wayward" Jews and try to bring them back to the "true" faith, based on a personal adherance to Messiah Rebbe Schneerson. So when they walk through a c ...

What a beautiful day! Left at 8am on a van tour of New York City. Went by Harlem and along the Hudson River. Then went to Times Square and walked about including some shirt shopping. Wish the sales people could speak English. Drove through more of NY and then down to the area of Ground Zero. Couldn't ses the reflection pools as we did not have reservations for that. Did see where they are building the new Freedom Tower and South Tower and the fire house where all the firefighters were killed. Ate NY pizza and a hot dog from the street vendor. Bought another sweatshirt from a street vendor 50% cheaper than before. More touring and then out to Ellis Island by ferry and then to Liberty Island and the Statue Of Liberty. Both very impressive. We found a bunch of Schenks but no Voges who came through Ellis Island. Drove through New Jersey and then back to the campground at 6pm. On to Gettysburg and to Hershey tomorrow. Mary Beth we'll be calling you!!!
Had a wonderful day in New York City yesterday, took the ferry to Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island and Ground Zero, What a great bus trip and great food. Ground Zero is amazing.
Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wall St, Ground Zero, Soho, Greenwich all done today along with walking the whole of Broadway! 9 and half hours on our feet. Quick change and then out for dinner! Loving this place.
ooh my aching feet... Ground zero monument... very solemn, when you see all the names make you think hard about the mentality of the people who thought this up, eerily quiet. Ellis Island and Liberty Island, apparently the wife says Lady Liberty has a big butt or the dress maker was generous in the cut of the cloth. Mr Obama is in town and we caught a night shot of the cavalcade going to the UN building. Walked from the UN to the hotel, hence the aching feet. Finished the day with a couple of glasses of Russian fruit juice and tonic. Museums and Brooklyn Bridge and Staten Island today.
My mom and I really wanted to go to Carlos's bakery ( the Cake Boss) so my dad took us it was so cool! Now going to tour the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, Time Square and then whatever else we find!!!
So we have done The Empire State Building, Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, Top of The Rock, Seen Brooklyn, China Town, Little Italy, the entire Financial District and the famous bull, watched a Wall Street riot, visited Ground Zero, Madam Tousaddes(have to go back today because Justin Bieber was off the floor because of all the lipstick they had to remove off his face) Shopped on 5th Avenue, found out where certain famous things happened and ofcourse spent lots of time in Time Square! Did we miss anything?
Must tell you the NY SEE IT ALL TOUR. Took us to Central Park... Rockefeller Center. Empire State Building... Time Square... Madison Square Park, Wall Street. Ground Zero. I think we will sleep well tonight so much in our head. Also saw Ellis Island so know where are Grandparents first saw AMERICA. Pretty impressive.Loving it...

President George W. Bush walks to a photo opportunity past the New York skyline and the famed twin towers of the World Trade Center as he visits Ellis Island in New York Harbor. Bush was making his first trip to New York City as president.
amazing! I went to the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero. Didn't get shot at by the cops so that was a bonus, lol!
Busy day today...started out in Scranton, PA. (home of "The Office") and ended up in Times Square. Stopped at Ellis Island, Liberty Island and Carlo's Bakery (home of the Cake Boss) on the way. I was reminded many times and in many ways how fortunate I am to be an American! Heading to Ground Zero tomorrow...mixed emotions but looking forward to the visit.
Off to see Ellis Island,Statue Of Liberty,and Ground Zero!!Then delighted because after 7 years of not seeing her,it's going to happen that we do-catchups with Belinda Black :-)
On vacation in the big Apple: scratch " Showtime at the Apollo" off my bucket list! Took a tour of Harlem, Uptown, 5th Ave and Times Square! One question I nave to ask why rent or buy a million dollar condo or co-op and have a window air unit instead of having central air? Times Square is unbelievable at night with the billboards and big screens! I am living like a New Yawker on Putnam Ave in a brownstone in Brooklyn catching the bus and train up 42nd St in Manhattan And 125th and Harlem and riding tour buses through the city! Tomorrow we are trying to hit Ellis Island (Statue Of Liberty) downtown, Ground Zero, and the Empire State Building! Well must sign off I need my rest for Tomorrow's adventures! I will be giving another update on my travels so stay tuned I will be here again tomorrow Til tomorrow B.J.

85F outside going to 96F they say, lovely day. Yesterday was a moving day. First visited 911 tribute Centre next to Ground Zero after getting sent to wrong address by website. Needless to say very moving. Then moved by ferry to Liberty Island to visit the green lady. She's an impressive woman close up I'd have to say. After a big lunch (hard to get small ones here) we moved to Ellis Island where between 1890 and 1924 the new immigrants stayed before being allowed on the mainland if they passed the tests. all quite moving. Then after shower, moved quickly to BB Kings to see Manhattan Transfer which was a great night. When I hit the bed I did not move...
My son is heading off to NYC ... the big apple. First stop tomorrow ... Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Ground Zero. They will be singing at both locations.
I had a wonderful 4 day in NYC with friend Paula. We saw 4 Broadway plays and went to art museums, ground zero and the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, etc. Now I'm back to earth, teaching algebra in summer school.
Another exciting day in NYC!! Took a cab to Pier 84 and caught the water taxi to Battery Park. Saw Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, Brooklyn Bridge, lunch in an Irish Pub, bought some gifts for the kids, ate dinner at Lucille's Grill inside B B King's Restaurant, dessert at Stone Cold Creamery, watched "A Streetcar Named Desire" which was excellent and now back at the hotel for much needed rest before another full day tomorrow!
