I've written about the subway and the bus, but today I want to tell you about the "Lady." Lady Liberty. If you ever have the chance to go to New York, visiting the Statue of Liberty should be high on your list of things to do.
After 9/11, Liberty was closed for a while. She reopened with trips to the island and the pedestal, and finally the crown. There are no more trips to the torch. They only sell a certain number of tickets per day, and fewer tickets to the pedestal, and even fewer tickets to the crown. I purchased our tickets online a month ahead of time, and crown tickets were all sold out. Tickets for the pedestal were sold out by 11AM the day we went.
Liberty Island is a beautiful place for a picnic. I wish we'd thought of that then! The views from both the ferry and the island are spectacular.
