Was amazing to see her up close and walk up the pedestal inside and see the museum (history of her making) and her original torch. You got a real sense of her scale inside and the amazing feat she is, along with the symbolic message...More

From NJ you first go to Ellis Island and then to Liberty Island. Once you land on Liberty Island you need to walk a few minutes from the ferry. Given that around 50-60 minutes.This is from their website, "Sailing time to each island is approximately 15 minutes. If you remain on boat for ride only without visiting either monument, it will be one hour and fifteen minutes. If you visit both islands the time depends on the time you spend on both islands. There can be long waits which can cause delays. Arrive early, especially if you have a time pass reservation."
