Anybody who is visiting New York City for the first time and does not take some time to visit the Statue of Liberty, has made a huge mistake. The Statue is arguably the most recognisable landmark on the planet and stands as a symbol of New York and America’s place as one of the world’s leaders of liberty and democracy. For over sixty years, Ellis Island acted as the gateway for millions of immigrants to New York. The island is now a major tourist destination and a must-visit for those looking to explore New York’s unique history.
