I am thrilled by the fact that I am already having opportunities to connect with people in New York and I am not even living there yet. Can I just say that friends around the globe are just the best!Thank you so much to everyone who has offered to make an introduction for me - I do not take them lightly.
Through Colter whom I just met via Kristin I was informed of a fascinating New York blog called Scouting NY. The blog is operated by Nick Carr a movie location scout in New York City (talk about a dream job!). Scouting NY just recently posted about the effort to preserve Ellis Island led by Save Ellis Island.
If you are like me you may be asking yourself wait a minute I thought Ellis Island was a huge tourist location... Well, the preservation that is taking place is not focused on the main building we all know about that currently houses the Immigration Museum:
My curiousity has definitely been peaked and needless to say Ellis Island is now on my New York list (I wonder if there is a way to explore the abandoned section...).. I can't wait to do a little more in depth research about this project.
