Everything was great. From the ferry ride, the views, and the actual viewing, everything was perfect. The ferry crew did great with boarding passengers quickly and safely.

We went in April and it was freezing so if you go in the colder months plan to wear layers bc with the wind it will be colder. Also there's a decent cafe in the island but it's a bit pricey. Chicken nuggets were $9 dollars for 6 large pieces. Just be aware. You can bring picnic but there will... More

We planned to visit the Statue of Librty (SoL) and Ellis Island with our grand daughters (4,8 & 10). I found the link to the Statue Cruises on the National Parks Service web site. There are other reseller sites that charge more for the same vessel. To clarify the information from the Statue Cruises web site I called and spoke... More

This place is incredibly busy but you just have to visit this iconic statue. Come earlier if you want to get farther ahead in the lines so it won't be a whole half day thing. If you loath lines and don't want to pay money but still want to catch a glimpse of the statue, check out the staten island... More

You can often see her in the distance but nothing beats the ride on the ferry, slowly approaching what has come to symbolise the arrival of so many to New York and the U.S.. We went in April and it wasn't too busy but we did book our tickets to go up to the crown at the end of January... More

My daughter and I went to the Statue of Liberty for the second time. This time we decided to go to the crown. Now I'm 81 but I still wanted to experience this. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked up to the crown with no problem. What a sight to look down on New York from the top of... More

A visit to NYC isn't complete unless you visit this iconic statue, but it does require a certain amount of planning. General admission/grounds tickets don't require as much advance planning, but Pedestal and Crown access tickets will, since the number of tickets available are limited. Be sure you buy those well in advance, to ensure you get them. If you... More

I waited too long and no crown tickets were available for the dates we'd be in NYC.The next available were three months later. Weeks after I last tried,a crown who decided to go with us went to buy her tickets online and WOW!!! Two crown tickets, on the exact same day the we'd booked regular tickets, were available! I wasted... More

Pleasant enough ferry ride, although boat always seems to be packed! We try to get on deck, weather permitting but can get a bit windy! Great views of Manhattan, the Statue and Ellis island. Understandably very busy on Liberty Island but, as with so many things American, organisation is almost non-existent...When I last went in '94, we just bought a... More

If you didn't visit the Statue of Liberty while being in NYC, you never truly visited NYC. This place should be one your priority attraction to visit in New York. The staue is simply beautiful. There's a boat ride that takes you to the statue. I would recommend taking the earliset one. Theres is the base of the statue and... More
