Not only a fun way but also a free way to have a close look at the Statue of Liberty is to hop on the Staten Island Ferry. Like most people who visit New York for the first time I wanted to see the Statue of Liberty but I didn’t want to go in and spend my whole afternoon visiting it. My mom came up with the idea to take the ferry from the Battery, it runs 24 hours a day! It was a bit rainy when we went on it but we could stay inside and we have a good look!
In the picture below you can see the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park, you can see it but it is too far away to have a good look. We had no time that day because we were meeting a friend later, so we decided to take the Staten Island Ferry the next day. This is completely off topic but do you notice the change in weather from one day to the next? Here I’m wearing just a top and the sun was shining and the next day it was rainy, cold and I had to wear my coat. The New York weather is so strange!
