My husband and I did not have ferry tickets in advance to visit the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island.We did not arrive at Castle Clinton until 11:00 am on a Monday morning. We were very pleased that we were still able to get tickets. The pedestal and crown tickets were sold out for the statue, but we still enjoyed the audio tour. Ellis Island was very moving. We watched the 30 minute movie and then did the audio tour. It is eerie to picture all the immigrants in the building waiting to see if they can stay in America. The banners that lined the way to the ferry had quotes from Benjamin Franklin, John Kennedy, etc.praising what immigrants have meant to our country. Even the announcements on the ferry were inspiring. I felt sadness at the way immigrants are treated today thanks to the ignorant thoughts and tweets of our current president.
