statue of liberty

No trip to the New York City metropolitan area would be complete without a visit to the Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, a true national landmark recognized around the globe as a symbol of the United States of America.

Limo Express proudly offers a number of patriotic transportation packages to the historic Gateway site including Gift Certificates available for any denomination, a perfect gift to friends and colleagues. Call us at 800.221.2345 for details and reservations.

Ellis Island, accessible by car or limousine with special permission that can be arranged through the United States Park Police or the National Park Service, or more commonly accessed by a ferry boat or helicopter for an aerial tour, is a phenomenal place to visit for tourists and locals alike. Over twelve million people entered the US through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1954 whose names are etched in history on numerous columns located on the island. The Immigration Museum offers a detailed look at the way the processing was done and the gift shop allows you to take a piece of the history home with you as a souvenir. The tiny 3.3 acre island that it was back then has been expanded to over 27 acres over time, using the land excavated from the development of lower Manhattan and the NYC subway system, a spectacle you must experience!

The Statue of Liberty is accessible by ferry boat or helicopter and offers an enlightening view of an engineering marvel. Designed by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi as a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States of America, the statue towers over 305 feet from the ground, high into the sky contributing nicely to the beautiful skyline of the New York City. We highly recommend touring the Lady Liberty both by the ferry and the helicopter, as you will be able to view the statue up close and personal utilizing their promenade and observatory tours, enjoy the museum in the pedestal and walk up the monument from within, while in the helicopter you can get a birds-eye view of the statue and its exterior giving you a complete view of this amazing work of art that stands for many things that symbolize the USA but most importantly: Freedom.
