Statue of Liberty National Monument
"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.
Its an awesome sight to look at this great standing monument in front of your eyes. The best way is to ride on the free ferry from stathen island station and statue will come across your right side. Go out on the deck on upper floors and take pictures or videos while enjoying the ride. There is one cafe on the ferry too and the ride is highly safe for families, elderly or people with special needs etc.
What an incredibly moving place to visit. Well worth the time and effort it will take its get here. Book well in advance if you expect to walk inside the actual monument! Ferry is clean and comfortable enough. Cafeteria style food is available for purchase, as you exit through the gift shop. From here you can reboard the ferry which heads to Ellis Island for a walk around those grounds and visit to the Ellis Island museum before heading back to lower Manhattan.
We had a wonderful experience here - from the stunning views to the helpful and friendly rangers/employees on the island. We booked a tour of the crown ahead of time and were able to get up there and enjoy the unique views, and while it was a small space, the two rangers there were very kind and knowledgeable. They even took pictures of us! Very positive experience overall at this symbol of our National pride and the symbol of immigration to the east coast by hundreds of thousands. Beautiful spot, well maintained, and we look forward to visiting again.
While the Statue of Liberty is a must see landmark in New York, the whole process of visiting it may not be worth the bother, unless you are also including the Ellis Island museum in your plans. Even during off season, the line for the security check at the ferry terminal is very long, and together with the wait for the boat, will eat up a lot of your day. Also, if you want to visit inside the statue, you need to make a reservation, and then go through another security check. If all you want to do is have a look at Lady Liberty, you can do it from Battery park. But if you plan on going to Ellis Island as well, it's worth the trip - do make sure to get tickets that include a pedestal and corona visit.
