This building has a rich history for New York City and is maintained by the National Park Service, but it was very hard to learn about and enjoy due to it being the center of Statue of Liberty Ticket sales. The area was overcrowded and...More

This national monument is nothing more than a ticket booth for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

A stop for the National Parks Passport (and also where you buy Statue of Liberty tix if you get them the day of). Worth taking 20 mins and checking it out and learning about the history of it. Pretty cool bit of New York history.

We called by Castle Clinton as we had recently found a family link to here as their point if immigration. Unfortunately as it was over the holiday period we were unable to access it as it was closed, however, the building itself was very nice.

NPS passports can be stamped at this location. This is also the place to purchase tickets to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Interesting historical area, nice view of the Statue from the shoreline.

We took Via there (similar to Lyft or Uber but less expensive). However the Bowling Green Metro stop is close by and several bus stops are close by also. Depends on where you are coming from.
