We absolutely loved getting to see Lady Liberty. It was closed when we visited (due to Hurricane Sandy damage), so we saw it from a harbor cruise on the Zephyr. I was pleased with how close we were able to get, and we took lots of great pictures. Because we did a harbor cruise, there was a tour guide who was able to explain much of the history and background to the Statue of Liberty. On our cruise (which left from Pier 16), you are able to get up and walk around but I think it is still helpful to know that the right side of the boat was the side facing the statue when we pulled up to you (best pictures). They did turn the boat around so the left side could be by the statue, but at this point, we were farther away and there was another tour boat in the background which didn't make for the best pictures. I think this should be the #1 destination for anyone visiting New York, as there is so much patriotism and history wrapped up in the statue.
