We booked in advance so avoided the queues. A must see visit when in New York. Security was excellent, all staff very friendly, it rained but we can't help the weather. Pre-booking is essential, espec...
This place is amazing, I sat in a couple ferries passing by the statue and have always enjoyed this monument. I have even been on a cruise ship that passed right by it. The view from the top of the st...
I am sure some would be disappointed that Lady Liberty is no longer open for visitors, but I found the opportunity to be on Liberty Island extremely moving. My family and I arrived via Statue Cruises...
What represents New York and the United States? I think it has to be the Statue of Liberty! It makes everyone believe that the United States is a land of the free and where we believe in and yearn for liberty. It’s like the beginning of the movie “The Legend of 1900”; when you see the Statue of Liberty, you are seeing New York. When you see her, you see America.
She also has the name of the “Goddess of Liberty, shining upon the earth”. She is a national monument in the United States, a symbol of America. Perched atop Liberty Island at the mouth of Hudson River, she wears a crown of lights, raises a torch of freedom high in the air and holds the Declaration of Independence in her hand.
Usually, one takes a ferry from Battery Park in Manhattan to get to the Statue of Liberty. It’s the most common method.
There are 2 types of tickets, standard admission and package admission.
(Standard admission includes arrival to Liberty Island,
Ellis Island, the bottom of the statue and the audio guide. The package admission includes an extra ticket to reach the crown of the statue).
This is a very popular spot. From buying the ticket to lining up to board the ferry, it took 1 hour. If you want to avoid the peak hours, getting there really early or really late is a good choice. However, because the distance is relatively close, it’s already lower Manhattan.
Once the ferry pulls from the dock, you can look out and see Lower Manhattan of New York City! Manhattan has the highest concentration of population in New York’s 5 administrative regions. It is also the smallest of the 5. It is described as the entire country’s economic and cultural center. It is the central business district of downtown New York, an area with the most concentrated number of high-rise buildings. I guess I don’t need to say more once you see the images below.
So iconic. So well known. A symbol of freedom to those how came here to achieve a knew and better life for their family. The Statue of Liberty! Although its cool to see, it is pricey. But it is one of those thing you got to do once. I would go, and I did. Stop at Ellis island too. It’s amazing and great to lea n something. Come see

2 Times Square
Due to the early establishment of the New York Times headquarters building, it was renamed Times Square, please do not translate In Times Square!
This small square gathers countless shopping malls and theaters. A lot of commercial and financial information is transmitted. At the same time, in addition to conveying the original intention of making you pay for your pocket, it has already formed a landscape of the city. It is the symbol of New York! I havent been to Times Square just like I havent been to New York. I have never been to New York. Ive never been to the United States...
The southern square is centered with a crystal ball, counting down every year. Crystal balls are the protagonists, and many movies are out of the country!
Transportation: Bus off at any point on 52th Street or subway
3 Rockefeller Center
Rockefeller Center The core building is The GE Building and Radio Concert Hall The 67-70 floor of the Radio City Music Hall
GE building is the viewing area, which is the top of the rock, which provides a 360-degree view of Manhattan! Contrast the summit of the Empire State Building, although it is not as high as the Empire, but you can appreciate the majesty of the Empire State Building itself, but also can see a large green park in the Central Park, the most important thing is: no need to line up! It is highly recommended to come to the top!
Tickets: Buy on the first floor, 32 for adults, 30 for seniors over 62, 26 for children aged 6-12
Transportation: 5 minutes from the Times Square along 49th Street
4Central Railway Station
This train station was put into use more than 100 years ago. The main staircase in the waiting hall was built according to the style of the Paris Opera in France, but it is wider and more practical than Paris!
The most eye-catching train station is the starry sky dome above the hall! According to a medieval manuscript, the French artist Heilu draws a picture of the ecliptic 12th house, with more than 2,500 stars, and the power supply is full of brilliance! It is said that this is a view of the starry sky from the perspective of God, so contrary to the human perspective, in other words, the starry sky is seen from a world other than the starry sky.
This is also the place where the male and female protagonists meet or separate in many movies, or the place of choice for artists' creative performances. The single-function train station was designed so that New Yorkers began to have money more than 100 years ago!
Transportation: Metro Central Railway Station
Perhaps in the country, you can find many kinds of green space for the public to relax, but you can never find a central park like So big, it's free!
The most beautiful spot in Central Park is also the most common location in the movie: Sheep Meadow, a local public favorite place to relax, and most New Yorkers come here to sunbathe. Note that this grass opens at 11am in the morning!
Opening time: 07
Set on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty is arguably the symbol of New York City. Originally a gift from France to commemorate the centenary of US independence, it stood as a beacon welcoming generations of immigrants into the United States when nearby Ellis Island was the nation's primary port of entry. Reproduced countless times around the world in struggles for liberty and justice, the Statue of Liberty is a potent reminder of the power of ideas and the foundational myths in US history. Visitors can tour Liberty Island and ascend into the statue provided it is not closed for security or repair. Many people enjoy the free trip on the Staten Island Ferry, which passes near Liberty Island and allows one to imagine what it must have been like sailing into New York Harbor for the first time.
