When most people arrived in New York by ship, their first sight of the city was the Statue of Liberty. Today you can take a ferry to Liberty Island and climb up to the statue’s crown. The ferry also goes to Ellis Island.
Between 1892 and 1954, this is where immigrants arriving in New York were processed. A museum sheds light on their experiences. There are many iconic skyscrapers to marvel at in the skyline of Manhattan, from the Flat Iron Building to 1 World Trade Center. The 108-story Empire State Building is an art deco masterpiece. When you visit the observation gallery, imagine being a construction worker in 1931 when it was built.
