I can not remember where I grabbed some breakfast, because I was in a hurry to get to the ferry that was taking me to the Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is a must visit if you are interested in American history or architecture. If you are not, and just want to see the statue, just hop on the Staten Island ferry instead- it is free and sails along the statue.
The island where the Statue of Liberty stands on (I had no idea it would be such a big island) is lovely. You can take the free audioguide and walk along the island while learning all about it’s history. You can also visit the museum and hear about the whole story of how the statue was made and the ideas behind it.
To me it was so interesting to hear about the architect and the transport to the USA. I am very happy that I booked this trip.
I had bought some lunch before I hopped on the ferry to Statue of Liberty, and I ate it whilst sitting in the shadows. I also do not remember where I bought the lunch from.
I bought a ferry ticket that took you from Manhattan to the island of the Statue of Liberty, from the Statue of Liberty to Ellis Island and from Ellis Island back to Manhattan. I thought it would be a few hours, but I took much longer and almost spend the whole day on these two islands (you could take a ferry at any time you wanted).
I went to Ellis Island and the museum because I was interested in the history of the immigration.
There were different exhibits that teach you about the immigration through the years. I found it very interesting and not boring at all.
Dinner @ Tacombi
Address: 30 W 24th St.
After a day of walking around the two islands, I was pretty tired and all I wanted was some tacos, so I went to Tacombi. I had been to Tacombi before and I like their mexican food. The tacos are tasty, the drinks are strong and the staff is friendly.
