      It was fun walking around Battery Park and then taking the ferry over to the Statue of Liberty. With the ferries leaving every 20 minutes, you could stay as long as you'd like there and Ellis Island. I will say the food at Ellis Island is horrible, so bring something to eat if you think you'll be hungry.
