We remain committed to implementing a plan that does not compromise the safety of our visitors or the security of this iconic American symbol. Safety will continue to be our number one priority as we re-establish a temporary screening facility at Battery Park. We are prepared to begin work immediately and appreciate the partnership with the City of New York that we will need to allow for a reopening of the Statue on July 4.

Ellis Island is not its own National Park site. It was added to the National Park system in May of 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It is part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and was opened to the public as a museum of immigration in 1990.
