Hi Mike,
Glad to see you got here...and thank you for posting your photo's - I just know everyone will love 'em...

So, let me welcome you to "Gente" - as I said before I think it will be a great site for you to get help in deciphering that Italian handwriting. Don't forget to post it...

OK.....WHEEEEEW Sorry it took so long to get these up here. There will be more to Follow.

Anything that is Labeled " South Side of Island" is off limits right now and quite possibly for ever to do the Biological issues due to the morgues and hospitals. these buildings have been gutted of all furnitures and equipment. I am sure there is still some things there. Thanks to my Father in Law I was able to get these shots. You wont find these on any web site.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow Mike! These are amazing! My sister just came back from New York and she wanted to tour Ellis with her family but she said the complete tour was something like $300 - is this true? I have been wanting to go for years but I need to plan for that type of expense.

Thanks again for the wonderful pics. Smile

Hi Nuccia, Not sure of those prices. I mean you take the ferry from manhattan or NJ and then you really dont pay for anything on the island except for souveniers and food. Right now the tours are basicly confined to either the statue ( which is where that cost may be incurred) due to the crown being reopened and all the hooplah. I know that the first week the crown was open ( July 4th) people were waiting at battery park from 1:00 AM for the morning tour which only lasts for 20.

The main cost is the ferry. i think it is 12 per adult and 6 per child.

I will post more pictures of the statue and the inside of her shortly.
