View Comments ()




    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is holding a party on Ellis Island following his second inauguration.

    His inaugural committee announced Tuesday the site of the party at a symbol of freedom on land shared by New York and New Jersey.

    His swearing-in is scheduled for Jan. 21 in Trenton with the celebration that night.

    The proceeds from the event will go to charity. Tickets are $500.

    In 2010, his inauguration celebration was held at Newark's Prudential center. It was a scaled-back party that night because the state was still in the depths of the Great Recession.
