"When you come to New York, you must check the Statue of Liberty If you want to see the goddess up close, most tourists choose to take a cruise on Liberty Island, and they need a long line (even if the tickets are booked online) to go to liberty island. It is not a dream to queue for two hours on holidays. ✌Ferry tickets and visit tickets cost about 170 yuan. But, to be honest, if you just want to see the whole picture of the goddess, don’t need close-ups, and don’t need to know more historical stories, then it’s enough to come to Governor’s Island ❗️❗️ Address: Governors Island, New York, NY 10004 ⏰Business hours: Open from May 1st to October 31st Monday to Thursday 10:00-18:00 Friday and Saturday 10:00-22:00 (Late night until September 1st) Sunday 10:00-18:00 Traffic strategy: Just take the New York City Subway N/R, get off at Whitehall Street and you will reach the southernmost ferry area in Lower Manhattan. The ferry usually departs on the hour and the return journey is also true. Featured: 1⃣High cost performance, free to go to the island, and a round-trip ferry is only 3 dollars, you can enjoy a free tour. The island has a wide view, overlooking the panoramic view of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan, picnics, camping, and rental bicycles around the island 2⃣ Governor’s Island used to be a US military base with many old red brick buildings. Planted a lot of flowers and grasses, come here to take pictures when the spring flowers bloom, beyond the film 3⃣ There are two or three restaurants on the pier on the island. Under the colorful umbrellas, the sea breeze blows, and you can see the buildings in Manhattan. It is very pleasant. Because I went too early, the restaurant selling oysters did not open, only a Mexican-style taco shop just opened, so I blindly ordered a mexico burger and a bottle of soda, oh my god, it’s super delicious ❤️❤️❤️The burger looks ugly Hey, bite down the fragrant and juicy beef to hit the taste buds, and I can’t help but eat it all in one breath ❗️Drink another sip of soda, and be satisfied with a burp Practical tips: 1⃣Be sure to wear light shoes~ If you walk around the island, it will look like eight or nine kilometers 2⃣There are many beverage vending machines on the island, but there are few mineral waters, almost all of which are carbonated drinks. It is recommended that you bring your own if you have control over your calorie intake. 3⃣The ecological environment on the island is better, so there will be bees (look at the last picture, a bee is attracted by my soda), flies and the most annoying mosquitoes. Try to spray mosquito repellent water. Don’t ask how I know, I won’t show you the bag on your lap"
