No place in the US symbolizes the American experience more than Ellis Island, located in New York Harbor. From 1892 to 1924, Ellis Island was the first stop for some 12 million immigrants from around the world as they began their new lives in America.

Join tour guide Michael Morgenthal, whose great grandparents immigrated through Ellis Island from the Ukraine in 1905, on a virtual experience that will help shed new light on the Ellis Island experience.
