Ellis Island, New Jersey, National Landmark
See Ellis Island from the Air!

There is a VFR corridor above the Hudson - just watch the FAA guide to flying the Hudson, watch out for helicopters below, obtain the HELO Chart for the area, and comply with the simple radio and altitude guides, and it is actually easy to do and very enjoyable!

We have flown this Hudson River Route many times with multiple aircraft and never had an issue. Seeing Historic Ellis Island in New Jersey from the air is an incredible experience, as you will also see the Statue of Liberty and the NY City Skyline! Breathtaking!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight of Central PA

Background:

Ellis Island, in Upper New York Bay, was the gateway for over 12 million immigrants to the United States as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 until 1954. The island was greatly expanded with land reclamation between 1892 and 1934. Before that, the much smaller original island was the site of Fort Gibson and later a naval magazine. The island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965, and has hosted a museum of immigration since 1990. Long considered part of New York, a 1998 United States Supreme Court decision found that most of the island is in New Jersey. The south side of the island, home to the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital, is closed to the general public and the object of restoration efforts spearheaded by Save Ellis Island.
