There's free parking and way faster lines/ticketing/will call than Manhattan - this is a good sized park with fantastic views of Manhattan, staten, Liberty and Ellis Island. Also the empty sky memorial for 9/11 is here .

Make sure to pack your patience and to buy your tickets online, otherwise, you will be waiting hours! The coffee at the restaurant is worth the chaos :). It was a long wait but the fairy and the history was worth the experience.

A very pleasant, easily accessible park with great views of Manhattan and the harbor. There is a ferry to Manhattan that costs $7 each way to the World Trade Center. There is a science museum on the property.

This is a beautiful park, spacious and very well maintained. Great view of NYC skyline and Statue of Liberty. Also has a 9-11 memorial in the park. Instead of struggling with driving and parking in the city, would highly recommend taking the ferry from Liberty...More

The drive is a pain and parking is tough but once you walk to the edge of the water you'll be wowed by the view of lower Manhattan and the back of the Statue.

The view of Manhattan is great. The view of Ellis Island is ok. We could not see the Statue of Liberty from Liberty Park. I have pored over my photos and unless it has since disappeared into the "New York Bay Triangle", it... More

Liberty State Park to Statue of Liberty to NYC back to LSP (7 Replies)
We are looking for the best way to go from Liberty State Park to take the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, then go to NYC (ferry to Battery Park?) then return to Liberty State Park. We intend to spend a full day in the city so will return on the later side. Thanks for any info!

When you want to go to Battery Park after visiting Ellis Island look for the signs for the correct ferry. There are two boarding docks, one for New York (Battery Park) and the other one for New Jersey (Liberty State Park).

I had originally booked the Ramada Limited, but due to bad reviews, I am rethinking my strategy. I'm now planning to find a clean inexpensive hotel in a decent area farther away and drive to Liberty State Park, park there for $5 (all day), take the Ferry to Statue of Liberty, get on the other ferry to go to Battery Park, spend the day in the city, take PATH and then Light Rail back to pick up the car around 8pm. Does this sound do-able? Is it true you can park there for $5 all day, and is...More

The website for the Circle Line Ferry says they have ample fee parking, and I know there is a "Park and Ride" there for the Light Rail, I just don't know if I would have to be out by a certain time.

Four of us are visiting SOL and wanted to know how much time it would cost and the total time it would take for the following (leaving the hotel at 8am): 1) Hyatt, Secaucus - taxi direct to liberty state park. 2) take the NJ Transit train from Secaucus Junction rail station to Hoboken. Take the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail to the Liberty State Park station. Thank you!
