"The lady with the torch" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by labadim

  Posing in front of the statue of Liberty
by labadim

The statue of Liberty is probably the most popular symbol of NY (if not the entire USA). A gift from the French people (before they started quarreling with the Americans on global issues), this is indeed a worth-visiting monument. A ferry from Battery-Park takes you to the statue of Liberty and to Ellis island. Until recently only a handful of visitors - those who came with the first ferry of the day - could actually enter the statue.

Address: In the Hudson River
Directions: South Ferry at Battery Park - Take the #5 train to Bowling Green or #1 to South Ferry
