ellis island log book, 1915. for example.
{ since it's impossible to include the whole of ellis island in a museum, and it's rich history, a log book of incoming immigrants will suffice]


from 1892 to 1954, over 12 million immigrants entered new york harbor through ellis island, including my mother and 6 brothers and sisters.
by the way, ellis island went from 3 acres to 27 acres mostly by landfill obtained from the construction of the new york city subway system.
