Visiting the crown of the Statue of Liberty is one of the most rewarding experiences of any trip to New York City. Visitors get to enjoy views from the small platform in the statue’s head which is roughly 20 stories high.
Some highlights of the crown experience:
viewing the interior (framework and copper) of the statue.
Seeing the tablet from above, as well as an up-close view of the torch.
Feeling the thickness of the copper statue
Starting in 2009, the National Park Service implemented a new system that requires advanced reservations for access to the crown. This reservation system is much different than how the public accessed the crown prior to 2001.
