Any tourist coming to New York City has to come see this and it's totally worth the time. Can't come here and not visit. Short ferry ride. $18 for an adult and that gets you to visit both the statue and Ellis Island. Get here early, the crowds really start packing in later in the day. First ferry is 8:30am... More

The security to go on the ferry and when you get there is crazy, It was worse than going on a plane. Liberty iSland is beautiful! The Best pictures of the suttee should be taking from the top level of the ferry. Once your on the Island you won't be able to take full length pictures. I did not go... More

Theoritically, the Statue of Liberty is just any other statue on a water body. As a matter of fact, the buddha statue in Hyderabad is equally good. But, actually, you need to be here to feel the aura the place brings. I haven't gone to liberty island, so cant comment much on the statue itself, but the view of Statue... More

Amazing views from the Crown! The stairs up to the crown are super scary for anyone with the least bit of claustrophobia but the view at the top is well worth it! Book your crown tickets early. They are extra and fill up quickly!

I had been with a high school tour group to see the Statute of Liberty/Ellis Island but our itinerary was horrible restrictive and we only had 30 minutes at Ellis and only cruised by Lady Liberty. It was also pouring rain that day so wasn't very memorable. Our daughter now lives in NYC so we come often. We had time... More

A wonderful spectacle from the water but it is also very interesting to view it up close too. Gives details of method of construction, materials used and the scale of the figure. definitely worth a visit en route to Ellis Island.

Please book a ticket in advance! The Statue of Liberty is magical. I booked 6 months in advance and got a pedestal ticket this year a crown. The history on the way up the stairs is lovely. Walking around the Lady herself is breathtaking overlooking Manhattan. Reasonably priced which is always a bonus. A trip to Ellis Island on the... More
