The original Ellis Island was a smaller portion of what today is called Island 1 of the three islands which constitute Ellis Island. The aerial photo below shows the three islands with their numerical designations. In the photo, the space between Islands 2 and 3 is water which was later filled in during the 1930s. The Main Immigration building, which is open to the public today, the Wall of Immigrants and the public gardens are all located on Island 1.
