Ellis Island

<p>One the biggest draws in Jersey City (and the entire United States) is Ellis Island. Located in the Upper New York Bay within the boundaries of the city limits, the island has been a symbol of welcome to millions of immigrants since its opening in 1892, and long after its closing in 1954. Ellis Island is also an access point for the Statue of Liberty (which is technical in Manhattan). It is a significant visit site for many Americans, due in part to its sentimental and patriotic themes, but also its vast immigration records.</p>

Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater

<p>Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater in Journal Square, is one of the historical Loew's palace theaters, and has been restored to screen classic films as well as modern music acts. Built in 1929, the theater closed temporarily in 1986 when it was sold, but the city bought it back through a restoration campaign. In exchange for their volunteer restoration efforts, Jersey City residents enjoy the theater as a landmark as well as a popular entertainment venue. It's a popular backdrop for film, photography, and TV, and is the main site of the Golden Door Film Festival that takes place every October.</p>
