Simply board the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island to get a nice, up-close view of the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty is just one of the stunning views you’ll see during the 25-minute ride. There are plenty of spots on the ferry that offer great views, but be sure to be near one of the front or back doors for your best shot. Be sure to visit Ellis Island while you’re out there as well!

Battery Park City

Go to Battery Park if you find yourself in Lower Manhattan. Some of the greatest views of the Statue of Liberty can be had from its 1.2-mile-long waterfront promenade, which also allows you to take in the peace and quiet of the area. You may also partake in sports like cycling or running after getting a good look at the monument. But it’s best not to visit on July 4th as that is one day when security is tightest, and an estimated 3 million people visit the island. The statue was dedicated on October 28th, 1886 and then opened for public use on November 2nd.

The underappreciated Green-Wood Cemetery is situated near Brooklyn’s Sunset Park. You may locate a bronze statue of the Greek goddess Minerva atop Battle Hill in the cemetery, one of the area’s highest natural sites. You’ll be rewarded to a fantastic vista from there that will show off the Statue of Liberty in all her splendour. There are two points of access to this hill and on the grounds close by: at Parkside Avenue (south) or Parkside Terrace (north).

One World Observatory

Last but not least, go to One World Observatory for the greatest view of the Statue of Liberty without needing to hire a helicopter. You may also see the city’s other notable landmarks from here. The Brooklyn Bridge is located just across the water. Just past it are three smaller bridges – the Williamsburg Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Queensboro Bridge – which together form a V-shaped frame that encloses a small bay on its southern side called Long Island Sound. If you’re really lucky you might even get to witness an NYC light show while viewing these iconic structures!
