Virtual Backgrounds

Transport Yourself
to the Islands!

Since 1886, Lady Liberty has stood tall as a reminder of who we are as a nation and the ideals we embrace. Located just past the Statue,  Ellis Island welcomed millions of immigrants and offered the promise of a new life and opportunity.  

The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation invites you to transport yourself to Liberty and Ellis Islands. Travel to New York harbor and stand in Liberty’s glow with these virtual backgrounds!
