Statue Of Liberty? Best way to see in my opinion is actually from the Staten Island Ferry (as its free and you dont have to stand in hours long lines), but if your go to the island itself, do the combined trip with Ellis Island.
Battery Park - There is a sculpture that used to be in front of the WTC, that shows some of the damage from when they fell, as well as a great Eagle sculpture that's a memorial.
Washington Square Arch - Mini Arch De Triomph
Cathedral of St John The Divine
You'll be able to fill your time very easily.
I want to do a 3 hour boat cruse which goes around the Liberty island and ellis island.
As the statue is closed, there is no point in going onto the island I think. If it was open, I don't think I could be bothered waiting in a long queue.
Too much to do in too little time I think.
Battery Park sounds interesting too. (Also free!)

The new World Trade centre site is great from what Ive heard from friends who were there just last month... You'll have heaps of photo ops since it is heading into fall (I think...)
No, should still be pretty hot in summer there. Fall Is more October.
I'll try to get to the WTC site.

Poor Peter, such tough decisions to make.
Wasn't it not very long ago that you were overhere on holiday??
Quick question: Who has the best price on CF cards at present? probably looking for a couple of 8G cards.
And, if anyone is after a cheep to run little car, the Carolla is for sale, just printed out a couple of signs, go for a WOF in the morning and then put it out on the road.
Yes it is a hard year on the wallet.
I was over in March for a family reunion. Now my sister is getting married in USA. I normally don't do holidays like this. I think we will be living on Rice & Water for a couple of months afterwards.
