Greetings from Statue of Liberty National Monument

In 2012, my partner Keith and I got a NYC 3 day pass. We used that thing like we were getting paid for it! And had the sore feet to prove it. But what a great trip to an amazing city. We could probably get a few more 3 day passes and still leave things unseen.


Statue of Liberty National Monument

The statue stands on Liberty Island in New York, and overlooks New York Harbor and the city skyline. A symbol of liberty and relief from oppression, she was the first sight of America for US immigrants who arrived by boat.

State(s): New Jersey New York,

Established: 1924
