Passageway

New York City Aug 28-30, 2021 Photographs by Christopher OKeefe

One of my goals for the trip to New York City was to visit Ellis Island. It has long been on my bucket list. In addition to touring the museum and exhibits, I wanted to take the hard hat tour of the abandoned hsopital on the other side of the island. It hasn’t been restored, though work has been done to arrest it’s decay. A group called Save Eliis Island offers a few tours each day. I highly recommend it.

        It wasn’t too bad there. People were masked up and I had to show my vaccine card a few times to get in places. But I also avoided the crowds, for the most part.

    I remember seeing a group of hard hat tour from the boat, I was both tempted and hesitant at the lack of freedom of movement, the group was narrowly chaperoned. But you managed to take a photo that captures the feeling of decay over time.

      In some areas, the guide gave us time to explore and take photos but other times, I shot on the move. There is an arrangement you can make to go there as a photographer but I imagine it costs more.
