We viewed the Statue of Liberty from Liberty State Park and while riding the (free) Staten Island Ferry. Both views were spectacular! I recommend both views!

I took my mom, aunt and sis in law for their first trip to see Lady Liberty. It truly was an amazing site to see despite the cold temps. No matter how many times I visit this city, this will always be a favorite stop.

I would say that it depends on your preference. I didn’t use the NY Pass at all because I preferred to book the tourist attractions I didn’t want to miss and to save time.
