Ellis Island

This was my first trip to Ellis Island. After we ate some lunch--that we bought from a deli near Battery Park, we wandered around on the small island 
I got lucky and found Anna Greif, my great grandmother on the wall with the names of immigrants engraved on it.
This is the inside of the registry room. I love the herringbone pattern of bricks on the ceiling.
Kitson with the financial district in the background. The tallest building is Freedom Tower, also known as One World Trade Center. It is the tallest building in the western hemisphere.
