New York City is home to the Statue of Liberty, the magnificent
creation of Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi.
Made of wrought iron structural frames and clad in copper plates,
the almost 152 foot tall statue is the gift of France to the people
of the United States of America and serves as the universal symbol
of freedom. The statue at Liberty Island was inaugurated on October
28, 1886 and was designated as a National Monument on October 15,
1924. The Statue is the number one tourist attraction in New York.
Your trip to New York will not be complete without a visit to the
famous statue and the Ellis Island immigration museum. A sortie
to the famous landmark is only possible if you can enlist with one
of the several companies that specialize on Statue of Liberty tours.
Participants on escorted Statue of Liberty tours converge at a
convenient midtown Manhattan location. Then the guide will take
the adventurers to Battery Park via the subway so they can board
the ferry to Liberty Island. While on board the Statue
of Liberty ferry, you will be treated to the historical background
of the Statue of Liberty, its symbolism, construction and restoration
efforts. As you approach the statue from the water you directly
gaze at the serene face of Lady Liberty with her soaring torch and
seven pointed halos that signifies the seven seas and seven continents.
Upon entry, you will receive a special Monument Pass that gives
access to the Statue of Liberty at a pre-reserved time - the only
way that you can actually enter and see the inner caverns of the
statue. Once in, you can view the inside
of the Statue of Liberty through a glass ceiling and you can
step out into the monument's observation deck. From there you can
grasp the breathtaking panoramic view of New York City skyline and

Ellis Island. The trip is a learning experience about the immigrant's
trials and triumphs as they come in contact with the new world.

did through the entry process. You can actually see the photographs
and mementos of this famous journey at the doorway of hope at Ellis
Island. You can even trace your ancestor's through the giant database
of the American Museum of Family Immigration.
Ellis Island, the historic gateway into the new world, is a genuine
American adventure shrouded with mystery and rich with family treasures.
