Impressively large statue - you get a sense of the scale when you're up close. Exhibits are educational and interesting. We had tickets for the pedestal; there were a lot of stairs! Pro tip: carry as little with you as possible. Security is tight, and you need to put nearly everything into a locker if you're going up into the pedestal or crown. The ferry from Liberty State Park (Jersey City) provided decent photo opportunities for getting pics of the statue and Ellis Island.
Of course everyone leaves out what's most important. You enter from the blue sign that says liberty house, there's also a booth there where you have to stop and collect a parking ticket. After you enter, make a right, and the liberty house will be straight ahead. Haven't seen anyone there to help you with your luggage if you're staying so bring help. Otherwise, very nice place.
Very historic place. Rich, full of history and information. Amazing view to Freedom tower and downtown Manhattan. Wall with names of who died in September 11 attack. Great way to tribute and never forget. Huge Park with beautiful views from any angle to any direction. Biking and jogging trail. Public restrooms. Food truck on site for some fast food. Take your family or visitors there and they will have a fun day. Thanks for reading.
A great place to visit. Running/booking trails throughout. Peaceful gardens to rest. Historic areas to learn about our past. We caught the ferry to Ellis Island here.
Love that park.. the ONLY and BIG concern I have is with the railings all around the park close to the water.. the space between them are SO big that I tried going though myself and did it so easily that I was scared to death.. Children are too curious, imagine a child trying to look down and falling into the water? OMG... I even sent an email to the lady in charge of the park, but I have not receive a response yet.. Hopefully they will put some iron nest before a fatal accident happens.
