Warning: Beware Illegal Ticket Vendors
There are many aggressive, unauthorized ticket sellers who will try to sell tickets to the Statue of Liberty near Battery Park in NYC. These individuals will often try to scam people through misrepresentation and over-charging. We highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance (see below). The only on-site location to purchase authorized tickets is the Statue Cruises official ticket office inside Castle Clinton in Battery Park (links to Google Map). Plan ahead if possible, and avoid these scammers selling overpriced and/or fake tickets.
