Due to conditions created by Hurricane Sandy, the Statue of Liberty is temporarily closed until July 4th.
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, symbolic of all the values that have come to represent the United States. This ferry ticket gives you access to both the Statue of Liberty and to Ellis Island!
The Statue of Liberty, a National Monument protected by the United States National Park Service, was first given to the United States as a token of goodwill from France in 1886 thanks to the original idea of Edouard de Laboulaye. Laboulaye saw the country as an international beacon of hope for having abolished slavery after the Civil War. The Statue of Liberty now stands as an international symbol of freedom and democracy, giving particular comfort to Americans and pride to New Yorkers in the post-September 11th era.
Ellis Island was once the immigration hub of the nation. Half of the present-day population of the United States traces its roots back to ancestors who arrived in America by ship. These weary travelers often waited with the masses at Ellis Island through periods of quarantine and hardship before gaining entry to the Land of Opportunity.
