"We come to America aboard this comfortable ferry from the Ellis Island museum and gift shop, seeking only a better life. Perhaps we will have a light dinner, and then perhaps see the new Iron Man movie. For America is rich with promise for all who come to her shores."

All joking aside, it's eerie to leave Ellis Island by boat after seeing all the Ellis Island Immigration Museum exhibits, since all transatlantic travel to Ellis Island was obviously by boat. The return ferry trip is almost like an experiential exhibit of the museum :/
