Is there a website to search other possible ports of
entry into NY besides Ellis Island?
Immigrants could land in Canada and enter New York State at the border in
the northeastern corner of the state or by crossing the Niagara River into
Niagara Falls, NY or Buffalo, NY, at the northwestern end of the state.

These border-crossing records are not online. For more information about
them, see:

Hope this helps!
