We took the round trip to the statue and Ellis island and were impressed to see from close (and inside) the statue. The museum inside was interesting as well, and it is a marvelous spot to take pictures with NY skyline as backdrop, or selfies...More

We stayed on Broadway. Just a 15 minute walk. Might go the Statue of Liberty site or Statue Cruises website to see suggestions of how to get there. You can also go from New Jersey side as well.
