Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry
One great way to see the Statue of Liberty is from the deck of the Staten Island Ferry. If you’re departing from Whitehall Terminal in Manhattan, you’ll want to be on the starboard (right) side of the boat. Heading to Manhattan from St. George Terminal in Staten Island, stand on the port (left) side. The best time to get the shot is around sunrise to avoid backlighting. Or, you can use that backlighting to spectacular effect by shooting a silhouette of Lady Liberty against a dramatic red-orange sunset.
