      Behind-the-Scenes Hard Hat Tour of Ellis Island's Abandoned Hospital

      TOUR HIGHLIGHTS: Get exclusive access inside Ellis Island's contagious disease hospital, which has been abandoned since 1954 and is now off-limits to the public Explore the abandoned kitchen, laundry room, autopsy room, isolation wards and much more See an exhibition by the world-renowned artist JR, who has placed life-sized historic photographs of Ellis Island immigrants on interior walls of the hospital buildings Discover what is left from the time period when the FBI was using the island as a detention center  PHOTOS TAKEN ON THE TOUR: MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE TOUR: You will receive your ferry ticket by email in the week leading to the tour date you selected, and will need to print this ferry ticket in order to access the Statue Cruises boat which will take you to Ellis Island. It takes two hours to get to Ellis Island from Castle Clinton, Manhattan. If your tour starts at 2pm on Ellis Island you will need to arrive at Castle Clinton, Manhattan no later than 12pm in order to get in line, go through the airport style security, and board the Statue Cruises boats to Ellis Island. The boat ride itself takes 40 minutes. The boat will first stop on  Liberty Island, stay on the boat and wait until its second stop which will be Ellis Island. Tickets can also be used for a departure from Liberty State Park, NJ. Taking photos is encouraged however tripods, unipods and video recording are not allowed. Due to the nature of the buildings, all guests must stay with the tour guide at all times. The tour is inaccessible for people using wheelchairs or powered scooters, and kids must be 10+ years-old to join.  Closed-toe-shoes are mandatory. Please dress appropriately for the weather, as the buildings are not climate controlled. This is one of New York City's most exciting place and we hope you will come explore it with us...
