I'm trying to figure out realistic time I should reserve for an online ticket WITH MONUMENT PASS to the statue of lib. Coming from a hotel (51st and 7th) via subway. since I have to reserve an actual time ex. 8:00 am 9, 10 etc. My plan is statue island only. I dont want to pick the 8:00am if it means we have to leave the hotel at 6:00 w/o breakfast afraid of missing the ferry. Now it comes to my another ? is the booking time the departure from lower Manhatan after security or the entrance to the pedastal of lady liverty?????
locals or past experienced help!
