We will be staying at a hotel in time square we tried to reserve tickets etc for the statue of liberty but battery park was sold out so our only option if we wanted to enter the monument was to depart from NJ - Liberty State Park...Can anyone suggest / recommend the best way to get from TimeSqare NYC to Liberty State Park...we will be traveling at like 7am in the morning...on a weekday. Someone told me there is a water taxi??? How much would a taxi be? Map quest says its about 10 miles from hotel????
