best time to visit Statue of Liberty please

Jump to last reply

Hi, My husband and I are going to be in New York from the UK for a once in a life time trip from Fri 10th to Thur 17th October and we want to do as much as we can in that time.
I was thinking of going too the statue of Liberty on the Saturday morning but I can only get tickets for the 10am ferry. I have heard that we should go on the 9am ferry or it will be to busy. Ellis Island is still closed so we will just be doing the statue and we don't want to go up to the crown but understand that we can do the lower bit to the wooden fort?
Has any one any ideas/thoughts on this. We had thought we would spend the rest of the day visiting the Bowling green, 9/11 memorial and then going to Brooklyn and walking the bridge back as I have heard that this is the best views and that we should do it when the sun is going down. Does this sound like a good plan?
