Amidst the skies and waters stands the majestic and beautiful copper statue. It was gifted to the USA by France in October 1886. One has to ride the ‘Lady Liberty’ a boat, to reach Liberty Island, which can be boarded from either ‘Battery Park’ or ‘Ellis Island’. At the Liberty island, you can take a walk around the periphery of the statue or choose to climb up (which requires prior bookings). There’s a souvenir shop where you can purchase souvenirs P.S : There are a score of amazing photo/selfi spots around.
The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York. It is a universal symbol of freedom. Ferry service is available to reach the island. Ferries leave from two locations: Battery Park, Manhattan in New York and Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey.Important to note that your sightseeing Pass is valid for ground only ticket to board the ferry and enter the Liberty and Ellis Island. If you want to climb the statue to crown level book the tickets well in advance, these are very limited. I missed!! climbing to the crown as tickets were sold! Still not to worry as we can enjoy walking around the island. You can get an audio guided tour for free.
