Liberty Island Open After Dark

The National Park Service announced that starting in June they’ll allow evening visits to tour the grounds and dine on Liberty Island, at least through mid-August. The decision was spurred by a successful two-day experiment last September. Though the statue won’t be open for visitors, it’s probably best not to climb those stairs after dark anyway!

They’ll be charging $35 for adults, and $15 for kids—a fee that includes a ride there and back from Statue Cruises. an hour or two stay, and dinner. The chief operating officer of the Statue Cruises told that last year “everybody either had a date or a tripod.”
