Day 20 : A very long wait for Lady Liberty..

Sunday 12th August 2012

Following our Bell Mans assurances that we'd be able to get on a ferry to Liberty Island with no wait at all, we had a relaxing start.

We went to the subway & purchased tickets to the Statten Island ferry stop.

It was already mighty hot when we purchased our ferry tickets, we were astonished to find the queue stretching away into the distance, round the usual chicane & off into the public streets. The promised 1hr wait seemed unlikely at best.

Eventually we were herded aboard the "Island Cruise Ship "..The views made it all worth waiting for.

The ship made a wide arc & deposited us at Liberty Island.

We collected our audio tours ( Mine refused to work ! ) & headed off round the small island.

Learning how the magnificent statue was a kind gift from the French & the logistics of the construction were aided by Eiffel , The french architect still 5 or more years from creating his own masterpiece tower.

The Americans however had to stump up the cash to build the base plinth, Newspaper magnate Pulitzer himself arranged the funding, by encouraging his readers to send in donations with the promise of their names in print.

The statue is made from copper & took 20 weeks to gain its green patina.

Back on the ship & next stop Ellis Island, a glorified prison camp for immigrants up until 1924, when the immigration acts came into force & limited the numbers.

Another audio tour, all 3 of us enjoyed this one!

The Americans certainly put a positive spin on, what boiled down to concentration camp conditions for some.

Back on the boat again & some cool views of the new World Trade Centre.

Much to Ians disappointment , a visit to the memorial is strictly ticket only .. We found a bridge which gave a glimpse.

Subway train home & a shower b4 dinner at Connollys Irish Pub & Restaurant next to our hotel. Excellent Food & A real Irish host who calls me " My Lady ". Marvelous!

Might take us a while to get home the beer is good & they do Jamaican Coffee which appears to have a whole cocktail cabinet of spirits in it , Hope Ian doesn't get a bit pickled & drink his eye drops !

Good night reader
