"Advice on Liberty Island" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by davesut


1. Before joining the queue into the monument itself you have to put bags in a locker which cost 1 dollar for up to 2 hours and charge more if you return later

2. Cafes are limited and mostly outdoor so if it is too cold get something to eat at Ellis Island

3. The tour takes up to one hour. If you are brave enough, enter as late as you can as the queue through security was none existent after 2:30pm. You would still have plenty of time to look around as long as you know the time of the last ferry.

4. Get some great pics of the Statue from the grounds
