We went to the island on the Sunday with temperatures of around 5°C (41°F) But with windchill it made it closer to 0° (32°) so you really need lots of layers. The audio tour (included in the entry price) is well thought out and very...More

Do we really have to be the country of bad fried food??? Yet everyone that served me was from a foreign country. I am sure there are some people from Jersey City looking for work.

So amazing to actually get to see this in person. The Statue is beautiful and the view from the top of the pedestal is beautiful. You can either ride the elevator or walk up the stairs. The ferry ride takes about 10-20 minutes. I would...More

Audio tour was well worth it. Great photos of both her and the Manhattan skyline. Food was reasonable priced in the cafe.

A well worth trip - interesting to see, nicely organised.If you want to walk inside the statue or around the pedestal you must book in advance. The restaurant is a bit naff - better off returning to Manhattan to eat.

A must see in NYC - a short ferry ride from Battery Park. There would be a long queue at the ferry, the ferry would be crowded but the park around the statue is so massive, you wont feel the crowd when you are there....More

I didn't go in the Pedestal, but I would think if you bought tickets in advance, you should have some kind of priority (i.e. skip the wait in line). I do know the whole island gets fairly crowded, probably no matter when... More
