The supporting steel framework inside the statue was made by Gustave Eiffel who built Eiffel Tower. The statue that is 93 meters from the ground up to the torch has a full view of the New York harbor. The statue used to be visited up to the crown section crown but unfortunately after the September 11 attacks, only the fundament section has been visited. A tablet is seen in left the hand of the statue. The date of July 7, 1776 Declaration of Independence is written on the tablet. The torch in her right hand was replaced with a new one in 1986. The original torch of the statue is exhibited in the Statue of Liberty Museum, along with posters of the Statue of Liberty.

There are ferry services from Battery Park located at the south edge of Manhattan to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There are 2 ferry lines. One of those is, as I just mentioned, the Circle Line and the other is the Staten Island Ferry from the same place, giving service for 24 hours. This ferry offers great views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, bridges and the Governors Island. It is also the cheapest form of entertainment in New York because they are free.

In the middle of Battery Park, Castle Clinton is located, built to protect the island against the British. The castle has been included in the national monument list. Battery Park is located just across the self-service called Zeytuna where there is also a nice grocery store. You can get some snacks from here where there are no tables.

The Trinity Church, that was made of wood in 1698 with the taxes collected from the Anglican community, has been rebuilt three times. While Richard Morris Hunt added embossed brass doors to the building, he was inspired by the Gates of Heaven in the Baptistery in Florence. Many prominent personalities are buried in the church grave which still looks very impressive despite the skyscrapers around.
