Info

The Statue of Liberty National Monument is a United States national monument located in the states of New Jersey and New York, and comprising Liberty Island and Ellis Island. It includes the Statue of Liberty, situated on Liberty Island, and the immigration station at Ellis Island, which was opened in 1892 and closed in 1954.
President Calvin Coolidge used his authority under the Antiquities Act to declare the statue a national monument in 1924. In 1937, by proclamation 2250, President Franklin D. Roosevelt expanded the monument to include all of Bedloe's Island, and in 1956, an act of Congress officially renamed it Liberty Island. Ellis Island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument by proclamation of President Lyndon Johnson in 1965. The United States historic district, a single listing on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, was designated in 1966. The monument is managed by the National Park Service as part of the National Parks of New York Harbor office.
The islands were closed during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 and suffered severe damage. Liberty Island reopened July 4, 2013. Extensive repairs on Ellis Island are still being made.
