The ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty was just amazing and beautiful. The sea breeze and the Manhattan skyline view is just breathtaking

A visit to the iconic Statue of Liberty is a must do for any first time visitors to New York City, which is just 10 minute boat ride away from Battery Park at the very tip of Manhattan's financial district.

We took the ferry to Staten Island. It’s amazingly big, spacious, all accommodating and Free! Takes you around the Statue of Liberty, makes only a brief stop at the Island and brings you back! It’s fun and a MIST DO, while in the city

You have to pay for the ferry to get to the island. If you want to go up in the statue that is an additional charge.

Apparently you can catch the boat at anytime but I would be on time for the crown, as there is a long line for it. If you haven’t book yet, I’d suggest to give a miss, the statue is much smaller than we think.
