Took my wife and nephew here back in November was a great day spent hours at the statue and Elise island the price is very reasonable for what's included. I would highly recommend going. The only disappointing element was not being able to get to in the Crown as all tickets are sold in advanced as a tourist it would... More

Great place to visit in New York. A must if you get chance. We bought the 'New York City Pass' and was included on that.

A must see while in New York. We decided to jump on the free Staten Island Ferry instead of purchasing tickets to go over to Liberty Island and got some great views of Lady Liberty. If you are after getting some up close pictures, you will need to zoom in if on the ferry as she is still quite a... More

The actual Statue of Liberty itself is an amazing attraction to visit, especially when the weather is nice, with a clear view of NY. Though what I am eager to share in this review is the scammers surrounding the pier. I purchased a ticket to the island in advance on their official website, however, as soon as you walk nearer...

The boat from battery park was very crowded which meant for many people having to stand for approx 20/25mins on the journey to the statue. Once arriving there was plenty of space for photo with the statue, as well as with a good view back towards the manhattan skyline. Overall would recommend :)

It was great to visit this gift from France! It is almost surreal seeing in person. You can take the Staten Island ferry and it sails right past it.

We took the Ferry out and it was well worth the money. We did not purchase the extra to go to the crown and were pleased with going just below the crown.

It's a must see! It is best seen via the Staten Island Ferry which is free to ride. You just pay to park on the Staten Island side. You can not eat the view of Lady Liberty!

Plan your trip in advance and make reservations. The boat ride over is very nice and offers great views. The Statue is amazing. Try to go when weather is good. We had no choice because of our trip being short and ended up in cold rain.
