    Take the Staten Island Ferry which is free. It leaves ever half an hour and you can visit Staten Island as well. The Free ferry is located to the left of Battery Gardens Restaurant.

    A best description could be half Mayor of New York that phrase he said when described his decision to give a respite for the Muslim pupils during the prayer times is "smart and respectable" solution

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 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!

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    Each ray on the Statue of Liberty's crown are the seven continents, measuring up to 9 ft and weighing 150 lbs. Michelin Pilot hiking footwear will offer support if you climb 22 stories to the top.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Celebrate the Fourth of July with Lady Liberty herself! As you take the ferry over from Battery Park, take a peek at this photo from 1984 when she went through some restoration. Read more

    Just great to meet miss liberty... I've seen her a lot in my childhood cartoons. I was on the boat form the New Jersey side, best choice ever. New York boats where overloaded!

    Plan to spend most of your day if you want to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Ferries to these islands are packed in high season so waiting to get on or off the boat takes 1/2 hour each.

    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.

    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...
  • Cheyenne S.
    So beautiful. There's so much to learn. Remember, if you want to take a tour in the crown, you have to reserve tickets months 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).

    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.

    No need to get a boat onto the island, just get the Staten Island ferry past the statue. You still get a great view and great photos

    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

    Fun facts - Her exterior is the width of 2 pennies - To raise money to build the base they sent the torch arm on a tour around the country - The interior was designed by Gustav Eiffel!

    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.
  • Hunter B.
    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 👌

    It's truly amazing to see this world famous statue. Though, do not forget yourself to the island or you might miss Ellis island at all.

    In 1938, my family first came to America and sailed under her arms towards Ellis Island. We visited 75 years later to commemorate the event with a reunion here on Liberty & Ellis Islands. Great trip.

    Definitely get to battery Park to jump on the Ferry, first thing in the morning. Also, if you prepay for your ferry ride online, you will get to go through the express lane!

    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!

    A bird's eye view of the Statue of Liberty! She may not look as tall from above, but Lady Liberty stands 305 feet, 6 inches from the base of the pedestal foundation to the tip of her torch. Read more
