A view from Battery Park, the southern tip of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, also known as Liberty Enlightening the World, it looks really small. Only approaching it by boat you can slowly notice it's grandeur. Gift that the French gave to the Americans, it is now a symbol of freedom and a welcome message to all immigrants arriving by sea, it is the first visible image of New York.

Statue of Liberty

Being the icon of New York making this place is my number one destination during my stay in New York. We can get closer to the Statue by using a free ferry from New York to Staten Island.

Statue of Liberty

It is a historic monument, beautifully built in the midst of the sea. The journey to the Statue of Liberty is really enjoyable and memorable ... somebody who misses a visit to the Statue of Liberty has not seen New York at all!

The Statue of Liberty

A gift from France, the statue is beautiful. You can go to the top of her torch and see the whole of New York.The statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
