What island is liberty island close to?
The closest island is the Ellis Island.
The major statue everyone seems to associate with Staten Island is the Statue of Liberty, which is located in the waters between Staten Island, New Jersey and Manhattan. You can see the Statue of Liberty fairly close from a trip on the Staten Island Ferry. Other than that, there are no major famous statues of note on Staten Island.
No, sorry to disappoint you. Ellis and Liberty Islands are so close you can see one from the other, but they aren't the same island. Ellis Island is for immigrant museums. Watch the movie: the Titanic, and the ship that Rose is on in the rain is floating right between the two islands. -Thanks for asking! Griffin.
Ellis island though thought to hold the statue of liberty is actually home of the immigration museum and liberty island is home to the statue of liberty. My school is teaching us the wrong thing! The statue of liberty is on liberty island not Ellis island thank you very much for teaching us the wrong thing harrison lane!
No, the Statue of Liberty is located on its own tiny island, called Liberty Island. Liberty Island is roughly one and two thirds to one and three quarters of a mile off the West Side of Lower Manhattan, in Upper New York Bay. Liberty Island is roughly three and a third miles from the northern tip of Staten Island.
