About Visiting the Statue of Liberty:
For many, the Statue of Liberty was their first glimpse of life in the New World. As ships filled with immigrants from around the world made their way to port in New York City, the first thing many saw was Lady Liberty, holding her torch high in welcome. Today, a Visit to the Statue of Liberty can still inspire an emotional response, and she is certainly worth a visit.
To Visit the Statue of Liberty, you will need to take a ferry to Liberty Island. Ticket prices start at $18 for adults and $9 for children. While not required, it is a good idea to reserve your departure time. Once you get to Liberty Island, you can enjoy a self-guided audio tour. This tour is included in the price of the ferry ticket.
Guided tours, led by park rangers, are also available at no extra charge. Many visitors prefer a guided tour, because it gives them the chance to ask questions as they learn about this important New York City Attraction. A stop by the Visitors Center provides brochures and the chance to see videos that tell the story of the Statue of Liberty.
For an extra fee, visitors can enjoy access to the Statue’s crown. Visitors who choose crown access will enjoy panoramic views. This special access only costs a few dollars more, and many guests at our Central Park Hotel choose to make the most of their Visit to the Statue of Liberty by adding crown access to their ticket. Note that crown access is limited, so you should reserve this NY Activity in advance as only a limited number of crown access tickets are available each day.
A visit to the Statue of Liberty is an iconic Thing to do in NYC. Add a visit to this Attraction to your list of can’t-miss Activities during your next stay at our NY Hotel.
