If you do not have a ticket in advance with a city pass etc., you need to enter from the main gate


ferry station

We will check your luggage。Place your baggage on the conveyor belt、Remove the metal and go through the gate。

Secure a place when you get on the ferry。If you don't want to go out, sit in a chair near the entrance and you can get out faster when you get off.。

Those who want to enjoy cruising from the top of the ferry go up to the roof deck。I have a chair、Secure a place to see the scenery outside。The first person gathers on the Statue of Liberty side、Recommended is the opposite Manhattan Island side。Moreover, the back of the ship is good。

because、The ferry will land clockwise from the left towards the Statue of Liberty、If you take the right side of the direction of travel, you can take a picture of the Statue of Liberty from the ship without being disturbed by people.。By the way, if you take the other side, it will be like this ...

Also、Because you can see the buildings of Manhattan Island from the back of the ferry、Ideally, you can enjoy the scenery of both the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan Island.。

Liberty Island

Enjoy the scenery、If you take enough pictures、When you're about to arrive at Liberty Island, get down and wait near the entrance。Because there are many people on the ferry、If you try to get off after arriving at the island, it will be very crowded and time will be wasted.。

When you get off, go straight and there is a facility where you can get an audio guide on the right side。Some are available in Japanese。From here you will be traveling around Liberty Island while listening to the audio。

By the way、This audio is almost unheard of by most people。Because the content is the history of the Statue of Liberty、It seems that there are many people who are not interested。I think that such people do not have to get it from the beginning because the luggage will increase.。

This is the entrance to the Statue of Liberty。If you do not make a reservation in advance, you will not be able to enter。Because the number of visitors is limited to 240 people a day、You need to make a reservation a few months in advance。

If you go straight from the ferry terminal and hit it、From there, proceed clockwise。Ellis Island and Manhattan Island、Wide view to New Jersey。

The front of the Statue of Liberty。This area is crowded。

The last shop。The price is reasonably high。If you have the same stalls in New York City、It's cheaper there, so it might be beneficial to check in advance.

The island is small so this is the end。Next time instead of returning to Manhattan、You will be on a boat bound for Ellis Island。

Ellis Island

From New York, take a ferry to Ellis Island after Liberty Island.。Most of the island is reclaimed and made。19Period from the latter half of the century to half a century、Immigrants from Europe landed in the continental United States via this island。

The former Immigration Department has been abolished、It is now a museum。If you are interested in American history, borrow an audio guide、I think it would be good to go sightseeing with Jikkuri、Maybe it's boring for those who don't? actually、Very many people are resting on the bench in the museum。

Take the ferry from Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty is over。Because there is Wall Street nearby、It would be nice to walk to the World Trade Center Building。
