New York Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island

France gave the Statue of Liberty to America in 1886. It was shipped in 350 pieces and took four months to put the now famous statue together. The statue's design is filled with symbolism. It is made of copper and steel, and the base is made of concrete. It is a world-renowned landmark of New York.

Liberty Island can certainly be an all day trip if desired, or just a couple of hours. If you visiting both the Statue of Liberty, as well as the island, it is important to bare in mind that you will need around 5 to 6 hours to do so. If you have booked to go on the tour, is best to arrive at the ferry at least two hours prior to the time of the tour in order to ensure you arrive on time.

Admission to Liberty State Park is free. It is important to make tour reservations before heading out for the island. Monument Passes are free when purchasing a ferry ticket. Those with Monument Passes will be able to see the statue's original torch.

When going inside the Statue of Liberty, larger bags are to be stored in lockers at a small charge, which can be found at the Liberty Island gift shop. Camera bags and small purses may be brought with, although they will be inspected before entering.

Following September 11, 2001 the Statue of Liberty was closed to visitors. On December 20, 2001 Liberty Island was once again open to visitors, however, the statue itself remained closed. On August 3, 2004 the Promenade and Observatory were again opened to visitors, but only by reserved tickets.

Since September 11, 2001 all visitors to Liberty Island pass through a security screening before entering the ferry, which is somewhat similar to airport security. Suitcases, and any other bags or packages that are larger than a plastic milk crate will not be allowed on the ferry. There are no locker facilities before boarding the ferry.

Although there is not a restaurant on Liberty Island, there are basic concessions, including ice creams, hot dogs and beverages. Visitors can bring picnics along.

Liberty Island is open from 9:30 to 17:00 daily except Christmas Day.
