At any particular time only one address was used as the immigrant receiving center for the Port of New York . The complete history of the immigrant receiving center for the port of New York is as follows: August 1, 1855-April 18, 1890: Castle Garden April 19, 1890-December 31, 1891: Barge Office January 1, 1892-June 13, 1897: Ellis Island June 14, 1897-December 16, 1900: Barge Office December 17, 1900-1924: Ellis Island
