    It was a gift from France to the people of the US marking the centennial in 1886. A universal symbol of freedom and democracy, Lady Liberty sits on Liberty Island at the entrance of the Hudson River.

    The statute was great. However waiting in line to get to the ferry was terrible, as we were packed into the ship like sardines and there were no tents to protect us from the heat. All in all it was 👌

    This colossal statue sits in the middle of the harbour. Originally gifted by the French, the Statue of Liberty is today a symbol of the strength of America and our open arms towards immigrants. Read more

    A fun few hours, though if you're short on time whilst in New York, you might be better not giving up half your day to climb this. Offers a break from the skyscrapers however.

    Did you know? In 1885, the dismantled Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor after being shipped across the Atlantic in 350 individual pieces packed in more than 200 cases!

    This is a must-hit for NYC first-timers. We recommend visiting the Statue of Liberty early in the day because if you board the ferry before 2:00pm, you’ll also be able to make a stop at Ellis Island. Read more

    Recently reopened to tourists after Hurricane Sandy, this is a quintessential stop for anyone visiting the NYC area. If you want to go up to Lady Liberty's crown, buy tickets in advance!

    If you have a cityPass and you'd like to go up to the top, make sure you buy tickets online before hand as they don't sell tickets on the island.

    The Statue of Liberty symbolizes the friendship between the French and Americans during the American Revolutionary War. It took a total of nine years to create, with 10 hour days, 7 days a week.

    If you are pressed for time but still want a chance to see Lady Liberty take the yellow water taxi, it will take you back to midtown, about 30min walk back to Time's Square. Got amazing pics!

    Be prepared to rent a locker to store purses etc. Only camera & water allowed. Will go through security again! Be prepared to hike up the tight & narrow spiral staircase. It's totally worth it!!!

    If you want to visit the crown, you still have to make reservations weeks in advance. Order together with the Statue Cruises online, and you'll skip the queues at Battery Park too.

    Currently closed because of Hurricane Sandy damage - take the ferry tour - you get close and a lot better view. Try an Italian Sausage on Hero bread at the Battery Park before you set out...

    Get tix ASAP; Only 250 people are allowed up into the crown each day. Do NOT buy a Flex Pass unless this is the only thing left; All tickets cost the same price. FREE tours are given by Park Rangers. Read more

    The statue's official name "La Liberté Eclairant Le Monde"/"Liberty Enlightening the World" was given by French sculptor Frederic Bartholdi and is a symbol of freedom. Independence is a State of Mind.

    Can ride on Staten Island Ferry (which is free) to Staten Island (not to Ellis Island where the Statue is) to get a view (not exactly close though) of the Statue. Not much to see/do on Staten though

    Famous American symbol :) for many tourist Statue of Liberty is a 'must see' place I guess. I saw it from the boat that had cruised around Manhattan.

    A must see for anyone visiting New York City. Make sure you book early and get the crown access pass so you can climb to the top.

    Do the free Park Ranger tour, especially if you're not going up into the pedestal or crown. You'll learn lots of great trivia in a half an hour

    The audio tour is interesting. Get tickets to go to the Pedestal/Crown before you get on the boat, as you can't buy them on Liberty Island.

    Just when you thought Lady Liberty was a sight to see, wait until you get a gander at Swiss Miss. This human Swiss army knife is looking sharp, and she’s been spotted wielding her blades of fury here!

    The best way to get tickets is to order online. You may have to do so up to 60 days in advance. If you call the day of at 6:30 am there is a slim chance you could find cancelations.

    National Park Service & Statue Cruises was amazing! Was traveling with a senior citizen and they were able to accommodate early boarding and priority seating on the ferry.

    If you want to climb to the crown, get tickets at least 3 months early. For the pedestal only, one week in advance. Don't pay a scalper hundreds of $$$- plan in advance.

    A top attraction for kids is the carefully restored Main Building's computerized Passenger Record, which lets visitors trace loved ones’ lineage as far back as 1892 (for free).

    Entering pedestal or the statue requires different access level tickets. “Crown” tickets (providing access to statue) sell out weeks in advance. “Pedestal” tickets are easier to get.

    When it was cleaned in the 1980's, our lady was washed with a method called sodablasting. Sodium bicarbonate, baking soda, was pressurised and blasted at the surface to remove dirt and grime.

    Don't underestimate the size of Lady Liberty, she is true giant. Booked early to see inside her, the original torch is a must see.

    If you want to go to the crown, make a reservation 3 months before coming. For the pedestal, two weeks before you come. Also, backpacks are not allowed inside the monument.

    Its easy to snick into the ferry line as every other person is trying to cover tickets and ferry lines at the same time and it creates a mess in around place where tickets are checked.

    I did imagine her to be bigger, but it's worth it! Take the very first boat to Liberty Island to avoid big lines. That way you can be done with both islands before noon.

    She is gorgeous! Make a reservation so that you can go inside the monument. There will only be a LIMITED number of tickets available per day to go to the top.

    not sure it is worth the money if you don't get a ticket to enter the statue -they sell out quickly and the only thing you can do without one is walk around the island.

    Be sure to arrive early enough to enjoy the whole tour. The last boat from Liberty Island to Ellis Island is at 5:25 pm. (Schedule Subject to Change)

    If you're going by group, have someone to buy all your tickets while the rest are in line for the security; better yet get your tickets online to avoid the long queue.
