    Statue of Liberty
    3 more images

    The statue was dedicated in 1886. It was a gift from the people of France to the people of US. Its original intent was to symbolize a common belief in democracy. It quickly became an universal symbol of hope and freedom, especially to those immigrants fleeing political and religious persecution in Europe and the Soviet Union.

    Ferry service is available from Liberty State Park in Jersey City and Battery Park in NYC.
    Tickets: $10
    Hours of operation: 9:30am - 3:30pm

  • Liberty State Park- drive all the way thru!

    Breathtaking! We did the Ellis Island/Statue thing in the morning. Go as EARLY as possible. Then you will have an easier time leaving, as the ferry boat lines tend to be long. ALSO, try to use the NJ Side to visit Lady Liberty, as Battery Park from NY has a launch, too, but the lines were 4x as long as NJ Liberty Pk return lines. AFTER you visit the islands, drive thru to the Liberty State Park area. WOWIE! It's beautiful. Park close to the information bldg, go towards and beyond and you will see an amazing view, w/a walkway that extends for a mile of so. You look at Manhattan, talk to locals that fish and have crab baskets in the water. We saw real crabs from the Atlantic, and the locals are SO friendly. Ask them about 911, and they will let you know what they saw. We heard SO MANY stories, we had tears. This park is worth the visit, and MORE.

    JOURNAL SQUARE, home to the PATH train station, ethnic restaurants, dozens of little shops, an Art Deco Loew's movie theater and a statue of Jackie Robinson, is the business heart of Jersey City's downtown area and borders numerous entertainment, ethnic, and government centers. Another part of the city worth exploring is at Grove St (City Hall and neighborhood parks)- one PATH stop east of Journal Square.

    A nice place to spend the day learning about all aspects of science. I have not been here personally. But I hear nothing but good things about it.
