The Statue of Liberty is one aspect of New York that I am sure everyone flocks to see. There is so much to see and do on the way there on the ferry which is very good and allows for fantastic picture to be taken on the way to the statue. The Statue of Liberty is a fantastic experience for... More

Really enjoyed our trip here. We paid to go up the pedestal and the crown. Wasn't really worth it. It's just need to see the statue from the ground and look back at manhattan. Really worthwhile trip.

took a pre booked tour which saved time, did not visit the crown but did take in the pedestal viewing area and it was worth it, a full history of the statue with great displays, don't miss it

What a different experience than the first time I went to see the Statue of Liberty. There is a lot of construction going on in Battery Park so we were confused as to where to go to get tickets. When you get your tickets you have to go they security which seemed to be extremely tight. All belts, jewelry and... More

First up the Statue of Liberty was a present to the Americans from the French. If you want to go you need to book months ahead. If your want to go upto the Crown you would need to book at least 1 year before you leave. No doubt we have all seen it on TV etc but to be on... More

The Statue of Liberty is a must see in New York. Visible from many places it is still well worth taking the ferry across to get those close ups. The only problem with this is the organisation not only getting you out there, but also the ferries back to Manhattan. Get there early, or risk long lines.

We were unsure about if we should visit since we were told that the Staten Island Ferry would provide great views of the statue. We finally decided to visit and we were very glad we did. Although the views towards Lady Liberty and Manhattan are a highlight, you don't get a good perception of the statue until you see it... More
