The island that ushered millions of immigrants into the United States is about to resume receiving visitors for the first time since Superstorm Sandy's surge gushed into New York Harbor.
But the National Park Service notes that much work still needs to be done. More than 1 million photographs and other artifacts remain in storage while buildings are fixed and upgraded.
Nearby Liberty Island also got flooded during Sandy. It reopened on July 4th but was recently closed again during the partial federal government shutdown.
