We probably didn’t do the museum justice as we were on a timescale. There was a lot of information to take in and we just wanted a flavour. Was interesting to be able to look up relatives who may have travelled through but unfortunately they weren’t on the list.
The staff member that assisted us in our research was very friendly and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed the audio presentations as well as the 30 minute documentary. To get on the island took a great deal of time. There were long lineups waits to get to the security point. The day we went was windy, cold and rainy. The cruise line staff was accommodating when it came to get my husband (in his wheelchair) unto the boat.
BED EXTRA CONFORTABLE VIEW AT YHE ROOF TOP BREAKFAST IN FRONT OF SKYLINE...just the paradise omelettes on the morning coffee and tea in the rooms jersey city is worth seeing.. you can go to ellis island direct from this area you can take the ferry to go to manhattan..

The location on Newalk Avenue was great - very close to Path train which leaves you in downtown/midtown Manhattan in minutes. Also good up and coming area close to Hoboken and ferry to statue of liberty and Ellis Island.
