"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886.  It was designated as a National Monument in 1924.  Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.

We took the full tour of Lady Liberty, going all the way up to the crown. What a great experience. The park rangers were fantastic, even took a family picture for us up at the top. The security lines into the statue were in the shade so that really helped with the heat. However, the ferry line was outside so bring something to keep you shaded like an umbrella if it's hot and sunny. I'd highly recommend purchasing reserve tickets ahead of time using the website, it shortened our wait for the ferry ride to the island substantially.

If you visit New York, this is the number one place you have to see. We enjoyed our trip here. The food at cafeteria is reasonable. Nice and clean as well. Informative and professional staff. Lots of stuff to see inside the statue, we even walked the stair inside.Good experience! However for the senior and little children, I don't recommend to take the stair to the upper floor. Elevator is the best option.

Beautiful place.. the statue resonates the greatness in engineering marvel. We took the pedestal tickets and the took the stairs up, which was not that bad of a walk.. my 4 year son did it with ease. The pedestal does not give a great view of the statue but really great view of Manhattan.. the best view of the statue is from the tiny park out front.. you cannot take any water or snacks up to the pedestal, but inside the park it is allowed.

Nice place to visit. We took grounds tour tickets. Highly recommend to order e-tickets online and go directly to security check line. Good view of Manhattan skyline. We were impressed that the food was good at the restaurant ' Crown Cafe'. We ordered spicy chicken sandwich, pizza, onion rings and fries.

Pride if USA, it is huge indeed and the most beautiful view you get is from the ferry. The more you go closer u cant take better pictures. The pedestrial access at level 5P is not worth at all. Also the whole interior of the monument really needs a major renovation. We saw some leakages, rust and dirty walls inside. There were 2 proper security checks similar to airport. They also do not allow any bags only water and medicines are allowed inside. You need to rent a locker by shelling 2 dollars out of your pocket and keep the bags in there for 2 hours. At the ground level it island has nice view of skyline. Overall a good experience and could have been better at this price.
