Ellis Island

New York, United States


This federal immigration station at the mouth of the Hudson River opened on January 1, 1892 and was closed on November 12, 1954, but not before 12 million immigrants were inspected there by the US Bureau of Immigration (Immigration and Naturalization Service).

"La liberté éclairant le monde"

New York, United States


aka "Liberty Enlightening the World" - you probably know it as the Statue of Liberty.
Reminds me of a movie : "Hey, how many of you people out here are a national monument, raise your hand, please? Oh, hello, miss!" Half expected to hear the dulcet tones of Jackie Wilson as we approached.
