Word on the Street

For many years the crown of the Statue of Liberty was off limits to the public. For the last few, however, the space has been reopened much to the delight of locals and tourists alike. There is no lady like Lady Liberty, after all, whether you journey to the top of her crown or not. The pedestal and the museum associated with her are enough for some, as is the required ferry ride over. If you're more in the mood for just a boat ride check out the Circle Line; we recommend this journey as one of the many things one simply has to do before one can say one has really "seen" New York. Please be advised that the first ferry ride of the day leaves at 8:30AM and that it is strongly suggested by the website that those wishing to see both Liberty Island and Ellis Island should be on a boat by no later than 1PM. Please also note that, as seems natural, the highest rate of visitation is from May to October, so expect long lines to get into Lady Liberty. And by long we mean an hour and a half.The ferry from Battery Park is the way to go to get to both Liberty and Ellis Islands.
