Empire State Building with Early Bird Access
See Manhattan in all its glory from the top of the Empire State Building.
New York is full of iconic wonders, but none more so than the Statue of Liberty herself. Hop on the Ellis Island ferry, get up close to the world-famous green copper statue, and admire her torch and crown. It's the first landmark millions of immigrants saw on arrival to the United States, and a must-see on any trip to New York City.
Schedule changes regularly, but generally operates from 8:30 am–4:00 pm with regular departures from Battery Park and Liberty State Park. Please check www.StatueCruises.com for the most up-to-date schedule.
Getting In: There are two departure points to choose from: Battery Park in Manhattan OR Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Present your Pass at the Statue Cruises ticket counters inside Castle Clinton at Battery Park or at Liberty State Park where you will receive a boarding ticket for entry.
Important - you will need to pick up your boarding pass prior to getting on the ferry. Additionally, you will need to enter through a security checkpoint before boarding the ferry, but do not get into this security line without first retrieving your Statue of Liberty ferry ticket. Once you have your ticket, expect to pass through airport-level security and be prepared for a long wait. We suggest arriving early in the morning. Allow at least 2 hours to visit one island and 4 hours to visit both islands. Your Pass provides you access to the Liberty Island only. Tickets to the Statue’s “Pedestal” and “Crown” require a reservation and space is limited. Pedestal and Crown tickets are not available with your Pass.
