We spent over 5 hours on Ellis and Liberty Islands, and then picnicked at the Park while waiting for rush hour traffic to clear for our trip back to PA. There is also a... More

This was a nice tribute to the 9/11 attacks to the people that lost their lives. It was very moving to see all the peoples names listed on the two memorial walls on the Empty Sky Memorial.

And have them enjoy a day in the park. Great views of lower Manhattan and the Joisey side of the Statue. The place is huge. CNJ train depot where the immigrants passed through.

We had a wonderful day visiting the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island. The cruise out to the island is comfortable, but can get crowded on the upper decks. Stand near the edge to take the best pictures of the Statue from the boat. We bought the pedestal tickets for a few extra bucks and it was well worth it.... More

The old Rail Place where you get your tickets for the boat ride to the Statue of Liberty is a must take time to look at all the details in this building. We almost forgot to get on the boat from taking many photos of this Historical Place.

I love to run to this place from home. It has a great view of the city. However, it is too open and has no shade in the summer and could get very hot.

The Historic Trilogy is well worth the time and effort to park and walk along the New Jersey shoreline. The Central Railway of New Jersey Terminal sets the stage, with Ellis Island next along the walk and Lady Liberty lastly. The large park to the west and the amazing New York City cityscape just tops it off.

On a sunny and breezy and cool afternoon, I parked my car free of charge in a lot near the Ellis Island. We walked to the old railway station. The view of Manhattan is wonderful. I enjoyed reading the history about the place. There is a ferry from here to the two islands: Liberty and Ellis. The Empty Sky, a... More
