That's what I've heard as well...Originally Posted by Wendy, post: 265906
Last year we visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum and took the tour. All of the tours are given by someone who was in some way directly affected by the tragedy of that day. Our tour guide was a New York sanitation worker. I still think of him often and hope he has found some manner of peace.
Sorry Issy, not meaning to turn the topic of your thread It's going to be a WONDERFUL holiday!
Can anyone please help with this question.....
Can we get a ferry over to the Statue of Liberty, (will actually be closed but can wander around) go to Ellis Island, and the ferry back to mainland for free?
Issy, to my knowledge, there is no "free" ferry to the SoL or Ellis Island.
Of course my knowledge is limited so I'm more than happy to be proven wrong by someone here that has an inside scoop. In the meantime, I'll ask around to a few of my more "seasoned" NYC friends and ask if they know of anything.
I *believe* the Staten Island Ferry is free. But it doesn't stop at those places, you would merely be able to "view" them as you float by.
