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.

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.
