YONKERS NY — December 6, 2018 — Yonkers Tribune has learned that New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo will present his inaugural address at Ellis Island in January 2019. It is an audacious slap in the face to President Donald Trump.
Ellis Island, in Upper New York Bay, was the gateway for over 12 million immigrants to the U.S. as the United States’ busiest immigrant inspection station for over 60 years from 1892 until 1954. Ellis Island was opened January 1, 1892. The island was greatly expanded with land reclamation between 1892 and 1934.
