Statue of Liberty National Monument Things to Do

  • Statue Of Liberty

    Being an American I can not tell you enough the pride I felt to finally see her in person. My sister was excited because we got a time pass to go upon the platform at the slotted time to walk near her feet. We didn't because of the time constraints, but just seeing her from below was awe inspiring, impressive, prideful, joyful, and so many more...

  • Statue of Liberty Pedestal

    Sadly, when we were here things were still raw due to 9/11, so we didn’t get a chance to go in unless we reserved a time to enter the pedestal. Time was a constraint for us because we had to still tour the Ellis Island and get back to Battery Park, catch the subway back to Broadway to get back to our bus. Now you have access to pedestal, which is...

    Combined with your ferry trip, you'll stop at Ellis Island. Don't just stay on the boat, get off and explore the museum. Admire the historic photographs. Remember that this is where several million European immigrants first stepped on American soil. Maybe YOUR descendants.

Statue of Liberty National Monument Warnings and Dangers

  • Security (High!)

    Security is a must here, so be prepared. It is as tight as if you’re going into an air terminal before you board the ferry boats to go to Liberty Island and/or Ellis Island. She is one of our national treasures and we must protect her, so don't take offense if you have to follow security procedures. They have security checks again before you are...

  • Learn about the Ferry

    Don't be like me and figure out the Statue of Liberty ferry doesn't land on the Statue's island after a certain period of the day and actually you probably shouldn't rely on getting back that way as the lines are very long on the New York side. Find the water taxi departure points.
