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
