Ellis Island: Up and running and as fascinating as ever

Ellis Island, the former federal immigration processing center and one of the nation’s most popular and significant historic sites, is up and running again on a limited basis following Hurricane Sandy.

Halloween Thrills and Chills in CityPASS Cities

If you live in a CityPASS town, you’ll be happy to learn that many are hailed as the top trick-or-treating cities in America. According to the real estate website Zillow, the number one city for devilish door knocking is San Francisco (which ironically has the least number of kids), followed by Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle. Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C, Portland, Ore., and Philadelphia. What do we mean by best? The rankings represent cities that will provide the most candy, with the fewest walking and safety risks. That means more full-sized Snickers bars and fewer wormy apples. But for those who feel a little bashful relegating their Halloween celebration to ringing doorbells like a spooky zealot, we offer a few mad pagan celebrations, located in CityPASS cities, for adults and families. read more »
