The over 100-year-old hospital complex on Ellis Island has been abandoned for over 60 years and is off-limits to the public, but every weekend on Untapped Cities‘ behind-the-scenes hard hat tour, visitors are granted exclusive access to explore the contagious disease wards, the autopsy rooms, and other spaces that are closed off to the public.
Recently, Empire Explorer joined us for the tour and shared photographs and video footage from inside. Check out the footage below for a sneak peek of what you can see on the tour, and keep an eye on the Empire Explorer Instagram for more posts.
This unique behind-the-scenes experience is offered every Saturday and select Sundays (including this Sunday!). You can see all upcoming dates and book your tickets with the button below!
