ELLIS ISLAND: A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION

Ellis Island, in Upper New York Bay, was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States. It served as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892-1954. The island was greatly enlarged with land reclamation between 1892-1934. Ellis Island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965, and has hosted a museum of immigration since 1990. Although long considered part of New York State, a 1998 United States Supreme Court decision found that most of the island is in New Jersey.
