The Statue of Liberty. Think of America and one can immediately conjure up an image of one of the most popular associations of America that being the Statue of Liberty in New York. The statue of Liberty is synonymous with everything about the United States and represents freedom, America being the land of the free. Where is the Statue of Liberty?

When I went to New York this year, we were in firm agreement that visiting the Statue of Liberty was going to be on our itinerary. It's a famous land mark and something that symbolises the USA, not just New York. The statue was a gift to the US from France, and it is an iconic symbol of not only freedom, but also the USA. It was our first time in New York and something you have to do at least once, and we decided to go all out and book tickets to go up to the crown whilst we were there, as we were only planning on doing this the once. After the September 11 attacks in 2001, the statue was closed, and the pedestal didn't re-open until 2004, and the statue itself ... Read the complete review

We booked to go to the Statue of Liberty first thing on a Sunday morning and took the subway from Times Square to South Ferry. We walked out of South Ferry and round Battery Park to the waters edge to catch our first real glimpse of Lady Liberty! Wow! Now you know you're in New York! Suchan iconic statue. We prebooked tickets online on the statue cruises website so avoided the queue for buying tickets and were able to go into the reserve tickets queue rather than the general queue. Our tickets cost us $20 - $12 standard fare and $8 for the audio tour. There was no extra charge for booking online and you print your tickets out yourself. We ... Read the complete review

Statue of Liberty The Statue of Liberty is one of New York's top attractions, right up there with the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge. It was erected in the 19th Century as a gift from the French and stands at an impressive 305 feet tall. The only way to get to the statue is by ferry which run every half an hour from 9.30am from Battery Park close to the impressive South Ferry terminal. We arrived at Battery Park shortly before 9am, having reserved our place on the first ferry if the day and it's a good job we did - even at 9am there were already a good few hundred people in the queue. The queue stretches out from a ... Read the complete review

I'll start by giving this iconic monument it's full title: 'Liberty enlightening the world.' It is probably the most photographed and instantly recognisable man made artefact ever. I visited it on a cold and blustery day last December. We were on the island for a few hours before going on to visit Ellis Island. It is possible to see the statue quite well by sailing past on one of the harbour's ferries but we thought it would be worthwhile to go and visit Lady Liberty close up. I'm glad we did! She has a beautiful face with a solemn determined expression. As well she might when you think that she embodies a nation's desire for freedom from oppression. ... Read the complete review
