Where to Get Lunch Near the Statue of Liberty
A good rule before you go to any tourist-heavy destination in New York City is to eat before you enter. You never know how long the lines will be, where the nearest bathroom is and how hangry the whole experience could make you.
You definitely don’t want to be rushing through something as majestic as the Statue of Liberty because the only thing you’re thinking about is liberating a slice from the nearest pizza shop. Make sure to know what your options are, especially before you get on a boat to an island. Here’s a rundown of lunch options near the ferry terminal to Liberty Island.
