Statue of Liberty

Day 2 of our trip in New York, we decided to visit the Statue of Liberty. Officially known as Liberty Enlightening the World, the statue was a present to the United States by France as a gesture of the friendship of the 2 countries. It is also one of the most symbolic and iconic landmarks of the US.

The statue is located in Liberty Island and is a ferry ride away from Manhattan. We went to Battery Park and to Castle Clinton to claim our tickets and ride the ferry going to the statue.

There were lots of birds and pigeons around the Liberty Island.
