This is the view from the Measles Wards in the Ellis Island Hospital Complex out to the Statue of Liberty.  I find it deeply ironic that this was the view of tens of thousands of hopeful immigrants - right before they were deported back to their home country.  Imagine getting so close to the “promised land” of America, and seeing this symbol of freedom every day - whilst waiting for the boat to take you back to your country of origin.
