There’s no post-Sandy reopening in sight for Ellis Island.

The immigration museum will now remain closed for the rest of the year. The biggest problem is the site is still without power.

But there is some good news. The artifacts inside the museum survived the storm unscathed.

But more than 1 million items had to be moved to storage facilities.
