This is the only way to get to Ellis Island and Liberty Island. We chose to leave from Liberty State Park rather than Battery Park simply because of where we were staying. The process of getting the ferry tickets and going through security was simple....More

The only downside to this trip was the security procedures but I guess they can't help that. It was freezing cold and twice we had to take everything off to pass through metal detectors. The security employees were incredibly unfriendly but the staff on the...More

The deck crew on the Statue Cruises were pretty rude to several people. They where rushing older people and then where complaining about how "some people didn't have any manners". Couldn't help to think this must have been what it was like when the immigrants...More

This is a must do for anyone in the area. But it takes planning. Get your tickets early if you want to climb into the crown, These tickets are rationed to ensure that you have enough time to take in all the information. The statue...More

The whole point of these ferries is to get you to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty quickly, and it's quicker from NJ than from NY, but I like looking around the harbor, and almost wished I had more time to enjoy the trip....More

There is a fairly large pay parking lot on the right as you enter the park. I am not aware of a nearby hotel. Maybe your friend misunderstood and thought you were leaving from NYC.
