The Statue of Liberty is so much more than just another New York City monument. Since her installation in 1886, "Lady Liberty" has become a symbol of freedom and democracy to millions of people around the world. The Statue of Liberty exhibit is located on the second floor in the pedestal of the statue and traces the history and symbolism of iconic monument through museum objects, photographs, prints, videos and oral histories.
The only way to reach the Statue of Liberty is by boat, but you can ride Citi Bike to pick up the Statue Cruises ferry, which leaves from Battery Park. It's a short walk to the ferry dock from the Little West St & 1st Place station or the Bus Slip & State St station.
