For the first time in 60 years, this 750-bed hospital—which once served as top-notch medical institution for immigrants entering the United States and had more than 1 million patients pass through its doors—is open for tours. This unrestored building serves as the setting for French artist JR’s site-specific installation, Unframed-Ellis Island, which plasters historical photographic images of the hospital in its prime across its now-crumbling walls.
