New York City, New York

Ellis Island
Immigration Depot since 1892, where all immigrants are landed and examined before being admitted to this country.  Undesirables are deported at the expense of the steamship company that brings them.  Visitors are admitted to the balcony free.  Ferry connections from the Bowery.
