The Statue of Liberty was still closed due to 9-11 while we were there.
We took the Staten Island ferry near her to see her better, but we were not able to go to visit her ourselves.

Current Park Hours: 8:30am - 5:00pm. The park is open daily except Dec. 25th. Visitors experience a special insider's view of the engineering marvel that is the Statue of Liberty. A limited number of daily time passes to tour the monument are available from the ferry ticket offices in New York & New Jersey for walk-ins or reserved in advance by calling: 1-866-STATUE4(1-866-782-8834)
