Battery Park was full of action - not only did we enjoy the NYC tumblers doing their street show, but standing in line for the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island ferry was interesting all by itself. Street vendors and entertainers helped pass the time during our hour-plus wait. It was also nice to see the memorials to the Military Branches and service people.
