Statue of Liberty

Jump to last reply

I have a 9 hour layover in NYC before I fly out of JFK to Europe. I would like to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island while in NY. I think I should have enough time and would like to find out the best public transportation route from JFK to Statue of Liberty. I was reading that there is a free ferry. Does it stop to let passengers off at the Statue and Ellis Island or is it just a ferry across to the other side. So which subway or bus route would be best or if cab is the best way, any idea how much that would cost.

Also what would be the timeframe for travel to/from and amount of time I should allow to see both sites.

I get into JFK at around noon and have a 9:30 p.m. flight out.

Lastly does anyone know if there are lockers in the International terminal where I can leave my bags.
