06 Dec: Kenny Bill To Increase Access On Ellis Island

TRENTON – The Senate today approved a bill, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr., to restore a pedestrian passageway that will provide public access to the open space on the New Jersey side of Ellis Island.

“Ellis Island is so rich in the immigration history of America that it should be experienced first hand,” said Senator Kenny, D-Hudson. “This walkway will enable our citizens to see the historic hospital structures and the open courtyards where our ancestors first encountered America.”
