Here's a new one on me that makes perfect sense - a reenactment program at Ellis Island. Here's a small portion of the write-up:
The reenactment of The Board of Special Inquiry on Ellis Island is held in the actual boardroom of old, which has been restored to its early 1900s condition. The modern incarnation of the board, which draws it's members from the audience in attendance, proves to be a lively and informative interaction. The new board members are encouraged to expand on the list of questions given them. The audience is drawn into the action, and the whole experience is personalized in a way that could not be supplied by merely reading about it.
Sounds like another visit to put on a NYC trip itinerary!
