Statue Of Liberty - Review
You must have heard about The Statue of Liberty, even before reaching New York and that proves the popularity of this place. The statue was designed by a young French sculptor, Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. The statue's face was modeled after his mother's and the story goes that the body was modeled after a prostitute. The crown of Lady Liberty, as the statue is often affectionately called, has seven spikes, symbolizing the Seven Seas across which liberty should be spread. In her left hand she holds a tablet with the Declaration of Independence and in her right hand a torch, symbolizing Enlightenment.
The Statue of Liberty is 46.5 meters (151 feet) tall and together with the pedestal it reaches a height of 93 meters (305 feet). You can take the staircase inside the statue and walk all the way up the 354 steps to the crown from where you have a nice view over New York City. If you want to enter either the pedestal or the monument's crown it is best to reserve tickets well in advance.
This iconic architecture is truly a wonder of the world and whether it is in the morning or at night – The statue of Liberty has its own charm – with or without lights.

Statue Of Liberty, New York City Reviews
It is a true representation of what US stands for. The statue is as beautiful as is it's historical importance. The ride to the statue itself is great and refreshing. You get a free tour-device on the island which tells you about different areas and things here. We also visited the museum inside the statue (thanks to the tour radio-guide) and loved it. The pedestal view is also very nice. It would be an icing on the cake if you can visit the crown - but be mindful that it would involve climbing a lot of stairs. An excellent place to visit for half a day, for the entire family.
Easier than we thought to get to Crown We were a little concerned about the steps up to the crown but it is super safe. You are walking up a steel spiral flight of stairs with handrails and resting points. Absolutely amazing and worth the exercise!! The rangers are stationed along the route and are at the top in the crown giving you tips on how to get a good picture and what to notice. Once in a lifetime experience!! So glad I was there ! Look closely in the first picture , you can see the inside of her eyes, mouth and nose . The second picture is her hand holding the torch
First make sure you set aside a minimum of 3 to 5 hours for a complete tour of the Statue.of Liberty and Ellis islands.. tickets are available at the battery park. And from battery to getting into the ferry it takes around one and a half hours. The ferry ride to the statue of liberty park is fun and exciting. And the views from the ferry both of the Manhattan skyline and the statue are exquisite. The statue of liberty national park has restaurants, a museum shop and if your ticket allows it you can go.right to the top of the statue. There are audio tours available at the park and even if one does not have time tickets to go the top of the statue, a tour of the grounds is exciting as well..
This was great. If you want to go into the statue plan and buy your tickets in advance. It is not included in the initial price to just get to the island. The audio tours were free and that was awesome. The lines look long but moved very fast. Great must see spot. Plan a whole day to adventure and explore. And enjoy the boat ride and views, they are breathtaking...
Stunning and crowded, but that's not a surprise. First major piece of advice I'd give to those planning a visit: pre-order your tickets online. If you do this, you can skip the ticket line and pick them up quickly at the Will Call window if you so choose. Also, by ordering tickets online ahead of time, there is more of a guarantee of being able to buy tickets going up to pedestal or crown because those sell out incredibly fast. I ordered our pedestal tickets 3 days before arriving and I'm glad we did because they were sold out at the ticket line by the time we arrived. Tickets for the crown had already been sold out until November as well. Second piece of advice: don't go on a rainy day or you'll probably be miserable. We lucked out and went on a beautiful day, which allowed us to have some great photo ops of the NYC skyline and of Lady Liberty herself. If it had been raining, we would have been soaked while waiting in line for the ferry, riding the ferry and while taking in the view from the pedestal (trying to use an umbrella would be nearly impossible due to the crowds and how narrow the walk around the top of the pedestal is). As for tickets going up to the pedestal, I'd say it was worth it because we were able to take a stroll through the museum located there as well. They are currently constructing a bigger and better museum on the island, which will be nice for all visitors since the only way to see it now is to have tickets for the pedestal or the crown. Also, all tickets (including those that do not go up to the statue's pedestal or crown) include admission and the ferry ride to/from Ellis Island, so that's a plus too. Oh, food and drinks on the island are very expensive, by the way.
