New York City 2007 - Day 3

Today, we set out to see the Statue of Liberty. We did a little research online and found out that we better get there early because the crowds can be big. When they said "big crowds" they weren't joking. The ferry was PACKED! Unfortunately, we didn't get there until 9:30 am and the tickets were sold out to get into the pedestal of the Statue. Lesson learned: buy tickets on-line before your trip. After our visit to the Statue of Liberty, we visited the South Street Seaport. The weather was beautiful-we had a great time there!! Then, we went to the New York Police Museum. This museum was so cool-it is free and the exhibits were excellent. After that, we ate dinner at Ellen's Stardust Diner. The waiters and waitresses all sing and dance while they are delivering your food.
