Ellis Island Bound

I am taking the students in my Immigrant America course to Ellis Island tomorrow. It has been about ten years since I have been there, so I am open to ideas from readers about how to focus our time. Any “must see” or “must do” parts of the trip? A lot of the students want to see Ground Zero. Is there anything there to see?

I am also taking recommendations for restaurants in the general Battery Park area.

  1. If you're going to Manhattan too, try the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. …I don't think it's that far from Battery Park. …I just did an extensive NYC tour, which included Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty last fall, but I can't think of anything in that area you're missing. …Why not go up the way a bit and see Wall Street? Goldman Sachs is relevant these days. 🙂 – TL
