Hudson County lies several hundred feet from the western shore
of Ellis and Liberty Islands, and has always been a gateway for many immigrants to the United States. Both Ellis
Island and Liberty Island lie entirely within Hudson County's waters, which extend to the New York state line at
the middle of the Hudson River. Liberty Island is wholly part of New York. Ellis Island is jointly administered
by the states of New Jersey and New York. Nine-tenths of its land is technically part of Hudson County, with the
remainder being part of New York.
Hudson County is also recognized as one of the Northeast's major transportation and industrial hubs
