Lady Liberty & Ferry


The Statue of Liberty National Monument officially celebrated her 100th birthday on October 28, 1986. The people of France gave the Statue to the people of the United States over one hundred years ago in recognition of the friendship established during the American Revolution. Over the years, the Statue of Liberty's symbolism has grown to include freedom and democracy as well as this international friendship.

The Staten Island Ferry in Brief:

Want to see the New York Harbor up close? The Staten Island Ferry serves commuters traveling between Staten Island and Lower Manhattan, but visitors looking to see New York City's working waterfront (& the Statue of Liberty) will enjoy the free ride across the New York Harbor.
