"Another obligatory stop is the..." Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by dzni


Another obligatory stop is the Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty is many many times shown as a symbol of freedom for the United States. Many times it is the symbol for NYC as well. At any rate, everyone knows of the Statue of Liberty. It was a gift from France in the 1800's. Anywho, it is an impressive piece of work. You can visit the island, and then wait in line for a long time to go inside! You can walk up stairs to a vantage point near the base. The stairs continue up to the very top, but if the weather is too hot, you won't be allowed up there. It's very stuffy, apparently, and it was closed off since the temperatures up there were above 100.

Address: In the Hudson River
Directions: This is also reached from the southern tip of Manhattan at Battery Park, via ferry. The ferry is inexpensive... like $8 to travel to both it and Ellis Island.
othercontact: My STRONG advice is to get to Ba
