Event description

Description

Join New York Adventure Club for a behind-the-scenes hard hat tour of the abandoned hospital complex on Ellis Island, the United States’ first and largest public health service hospital, which operated between 1902 and 1930.

Our adventure through select areas of the 750-bed Ellis Island Hospital Complex, which has been abandoned for over 60 years, will include:

  • A walkthrough of the Isolation, Measles, and Trachoma Wards
  • Access inside the Kitchen, Laundry Room, Administration Building, Ferry Building, and Pharmacist’s House
  • A visit to the Autopsy Area
  • A close up look at life-size historic photographs of Ellis Island immigrants by renowned artist JR, which are installed on 16 interior walls
  • Exclusive NYAC access to secret areas throughout the complex where the public isn’t allowed

A NY Adventure Club Brand Ambassador will be on-hand to assist with each leg of the trip, from handing out ferry tickets, to boarding the ferry, to making contact with the tour guide.
