Ellis Island
David Luchsinger, the superintendent for Ellis Island and the neighboring Statue of Liberty, shows journalists how high the water rose in the basement of a building on Ellis Island in New York, Monday, Oct. 28, 2013. The island that ushered millions of immigrants into the United States received visitors Monday for the first time since Superstorm Sandy. Sandy swamped boilers and electrical systems and left the 27.5-acre island without power for months. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
