My family and I had didn't have any plans for the weekend so we decided to vusit the statue. We deported from New Jersey to Ellis Island where we visited the museum which unfortunately has a lot of artifacts removed because of Hurricane Sandy. From there we went to Liberty Island where we went inside the statue which has a wonderful view! Afterwards we walked around the island enjoying the great view of New York It was a fun way for us to spend our Sunday. Overall it was a great experience!!!!! (Be sure to reserve tickets earlier otherwise they will not let you into the statue! 3 days earlier for pedestal access with no extra fee and crown access is an extra 3 dollars. Buy tickets through Statue Cruises! General Tickets will get you on both Liberty and Ellis Island for 18 dollars an adult.)

This has to be one of the reason why so many people goto New York City. I am one of them. You see this spectacular monument on tv in movies. Seeing it in person is truly such an experience. Make sure you book way in advance before you goto the Island.

An amazing experience! Have gone a few times via the Stature Cruises group. Reserve online at the statue site to reserve pedestal and crown access. Also book a time - barely a wait then. The ferry out is fun to watch her coming into view, going around her from all angles. A short walk to the last screening and lockers and then you are there. Inside her base there is a torch and above is a great museum that takes you through her history and how she was made. Enlightening! The views from the pedestal are worth it. Great views of lower Manhattan. She is magnificent and such a huge part of the US identity as the gateway. Go! Should allocate probably 3 hours from Battery Park, to statue and back. Ellis Island is a stop on the way back.

'Tho' i know too much of history for my own good this remains a favorite spot of mine. For 30 yrs i lived on Staten Island... 4 miles to the south. I passed it ten times a week on the ferry. Imagine how you would have felt as an immigrant to our land, & this statue greeted you; impressive... right? We're told that it was a gift from France honoring our 100th birthday. But did it come 10 yrs L8? Not quite; it's complicated. There are 2 facts Americans have forgotten: we needed to raise enuf money to build its pedestal, &... {this is hotly debated, but i'm convinced} France had originally built it to stand at the north entrance of Egypt's new Suez Canal. That's right... France was guilty of sort of 'regifting'! Altho' that's debatable there can be no debate about our inability to raise funds for where to put it; fund-raising drives were slow, & tedious! Another fact that's not widely known is its name. It isn't 'The Statue of Liberty'... it's 'Liberty Enlightening the World'... & the iconic inscription at its base... "Give me your tired, your poor..." etc. wasn't put there for decades! It was not painted that iconic moss green... that's just plain old copper corrosion. When first opened to the public one could take a side trip onto the torch. Too many people did so; it became dangerously weakened, & was closed off for decades. From the crown you can peer out across New York Harbor... even out to the Atlantic... {that is IF you have the patience to go thru security check!}. Be sure not to wear yourself out; next stop... nearby Ellis Island!

Such a great experience. Make sure you book your tour to enter the statue or you don't get to go up even to the base. The security is unparallelled. I've been to airports with much less. If you are afraid of heights, this is not for you, my three year old did great, one of the adults in our household hmm, not so much:0) Definitely something to see before you die, especially if your family immigrated to the US from another country, as it is right next to Ellis Island. Beautiful pictures!

Our National Parks Service always does a good job keeping grounds clean and monuments open as often as possible, and Lady Liberty is no different. I am disappointed in the process necessary to register for the walk up to the crown (almost six months in advance or more), but our Lady Liberty is aging and I understand the precautions and limitations necessary to preserve her. She's as grand as ever after her recent cleaning and restoration. I got to see her with a real flame when I was a kid, but now the torch is "lit" with a gold flame sculpture that reflects sunlight during the day and is "lit" artificially at night with lights. Some hints for families. If you're going to get inside Lady Liberty, and especially the crown, you need to reserve the tickets online well in advance. On your date of visit, arrive at Battery Park EARLY, like 8am. Ignore all the ticket hawkers and go directly to the round Castle Clinton to buy or pick up your tickets. If you arrive even as late as 10am, you will end up with a 3 hour wait time between the ticket lines and the security checkpoint lines. Food and water. Bring it with you in a backpack. Carry two waters for each person in your group, and pack food that does not require refrigeration and has protein to carry you through the day, like PBJ sandwiches. The only place to eat on Liberty Island is the Liberty Cafe, and it is an absolute tourist trap in every way (expensive, unorganized, and bad food). Trust me, if you eat at the Cafe, you'll wish you'd brought the sandwiches! Lastly, if you are a police officer in NY or NJ, bring your sidearm, just like you would if you were off duty in your own area. After you get your tickets, respectfully approach the first security person you see and identify yourself and let them know you are armed. They will whisk you and your family through the security line and save you the long wait. If you are going into the Statue of Liberty, you will have to lock up your sidearm along with your backpack on Liberty Island, but no big deal. Unfortunately, police officers from other outside states are not given this courtesy, so leave your sidearm at home, or locked in the hotel safe for this particular day; they will not even let you board the boat from Battery Park. Enjoy your day!

Ah, Lady Liberty! I am normally not a fan of ferries, but I endured it to see this beautiful monument. ALWAYS lots of tourists. You can also check out the Sculpture Garden, which is also pretty cool.

It is so sad that you can not buy a ticket to go into the statue AT the statue. How would everyone that visits the statue know that they have to buy tickets in advance on line! Seriously, do they think everyone owns a computer and can do that, what about people coming from other countries! Well, lets just say there were two very sad 8 year olds walking AROUND the statue yesterday, 4/19/15. So very disapointing.
