NY – No visit to NYC is complete without a trip to the Statue of Liberty. It’s a symbol of freedom, the USA and NYC and there’s no better time to go than right now because after a year of renovations, access to the Statue of Liberty‘s crown will be available to the public.
1. So, stop what you’re doing and secure your tickets right now. The ferry ride couldn’t be more lovely this time of year!
2. Tickets to the crown are in addition to a regular ticket to the statue, however, they are free and limited, hence the reason you’ve got to move on this one. The dates currently available are between October 28 and December 31, 2012, Thursdays through Sundays. Even though a visit involves walking up 393 steps, it’s well worth the climb for a chance to stand in the iconic crown where the 25 windows look out on lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
3. Hungry? Take a bagged lunch or grab something from The Ellis Cafe, The Crown Cafe or the Kiosk Cafe and search out a shady picnic spot! All the island’s food concessions are committed to their environmental impact and provide healthy dining options and snacks (including gluten free), utilize locally sourced and organic foods and recycle over 94% of the waste products in their cafes!
