Lady Liberty may be set to open this summer, but it's going to take a while for her neighbor to bounce back from Superstorm Sandy.

A spokeswoman for the National Park Service said Sunday there is no definite timetable for the reopening for Ellis Island to the public because tof the damage to its infrastructure during the Oct. 29 storm.

Linda Friar said crews saved many historical items from the Ellis Island Museum before Sandy flooded it.

The island will be the spot for a primary security checkpoint for Liberty Island visitors when it reopens sometime by July 4, the National Park Service said Friday.
