"Give me your tired and not-so-poor tourists" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by Tijavi
Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island, New York City: 413 reviews and 682 photos
Gone are the days when the Statue of Liberty welcomed immigrants - mainly from Europe - to this land of milk and honey. Today, a more modern version of the poet Emma Lazarus' famous line in her sonnet The New Colussus, "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free," would be more relevant to tourists visiting Liberty Island.
Tired and huddled? Yes, taking into account the amount of time one queues up for the tour.
But poor? Definitely no - at least relative to probably billions of other inhabitants in this planet - with the 13-dollar-per-person ferry ride.
Worth it? Definitely, if you're a first time visitor to NYC. No visit to NYC is complete without seeing this iconic statue.
