If like many people you have heard about the big apple but still don't know where to focus, here are some places you should look at!
Statue of Liberty
Embark on a ferry to the famous Statue of Liberty and its huge pedestal on Liberty Island. It was in 1886 that France offered it to the United States as a token of friendship between the two nations and to celebrate the centenary of the American declaration of independence.
The second option is to go for a walk on Staten Island and admire the Statue of Liberty on your way there from the ferry (in the distance). You can also enjoy a breathtaking view of Manhattan Island.
Ferry + tickets for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island: $18.5
