When you think about the Ellis Island Ferry, the first images that come to mind are probably aggressive ticket sellers and hordes of tourists. The completely remodeled, whimsically-designed interior of the oldest-surviving Ellis Island ferry (which is currently on the market for $1.25 million) is pretty much the exact opposite of that.
The 4,000-square-foot vessel has definitely seen plenty of history. In addition to ferrying newly-arrived immigrants from Ellis Island to Manhattan, the 109-year-old ferry also served in both world wars. And now it can your houseboat!
