In 1990, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum opened on the island's north side. However, some thirty buildings on the south side remain un-restored. The interior of this room on the south side has a red color cast because of the reflected light from the adjacent terra cotta roof tiles. Straight exposure, not HDR image.
