Ellis Island Monday 10th October

Some of us had yummy pancakes for breakfast. It was decided, after a discussion, that people would like to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island via the subway. We took a boat to Liberty Island and then on to Ellis Island where we learned about the immigration process during 1890 - 1930. It was very interesting and informative. Later on we returned to mid town for our evening meal and then back to the hotel.
