This is an American icon. Just beautiful and awe inspiring. Her back is to NJ because she has to watch out for all those New Yorkers ;-)

Had a fantastic time in New York, highlight for us was our walking tour around the city with Viator, Sean our guide was a very informative young man, kept me and my wife interested the whole day, with visits to Liberty and Ellis Islands included. We finished our tour next to our hotel the Millenium Hilton at the One World... More

Was so glad my wife booked the event and forced us to go there. We were one of the few (400 out of 24,000 everyday), that went inside and climbed to the crown.

We opted to take the cruise around the Statue instead of waiting in long lines to actually get off at the Statue. The cruise was nice except for a large group of rude travelers who just about sat in my lap to get a good selfie. Other than that, it was short and sweet

We'd booked piedestal tickets which is definitely worth while to get a different view of the city. Even with these "priority" tickets, it took over an hour to get to the boat to take us there. And then you had to queue again to get on the boat back. Apart from the queuing though, this is a great experience.

Very enjoyable visit if weather good, we had pedestal and crown access, pedestal access a must , crown access not really worth it. ...its pretty small up there and windows are small so no great photo opportunities
