Hospitals at Ellis Island
About This Image
Originally one tiny island, over the years, using landfill, the island was formed into an 'E' shape, water vessels arriving and departing between the prongs of the 'E'.
As the present-day ferry pulls in to dock alongside the Main Building, the Ferry Terminal Building is directly in front and the Hospitals are to the left - more ornate structures. On the far side of the hospitals, is the third branch of the 'E' with many other buildings whose purpose I'm not sure of - possibly employee lodging or perhaps family lodgings, as the main building dormitories kept the sexes separated.
These hospitals will also be restored as funding becomes available.
