  • The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
    After having been closed for about a year due to damage from Superstorm Sandy, Ellis Island reopened in late October 2013. While the museum is not entirely back to normal—many artifacts remain in storage, the family history center is inoperative until at least the end of 2013 and the on-site restaurant is closed—visitors can take a ferry to the island, explore the institution's main floor and see the Great Hall where immigrants were processed as they entered the United States. The Statue of Liberty, meanwhile—accessible via that very same ferry—has also reopened. With advance reservations, visitors can experience the view from inside Lady Liberty's crown. Please note, though, that crown tickets are booked many months ahead of time—so if you're planning to visit, be sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible.
