    Lady Liberty, you have seen her in many pictures but, up close and personal is different and better. Get a ticket to climb right up to the Crown, 377 steps but my word, the views! Spectacular!

    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.

    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 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.
