State / Provincial Park
“From the park, you can see the back of the Statue of Liberty. It is a great place to take the ferry to the Statue because it’s less busy than the New York side. Parking for the ferry cost 7 dollars a day, but parking for the park. The park offers stunning views of New York’s skyline and New York harbor!”
