Book Your Reservations.
It's very important to know that you must make reservations to the statue of liberty for the chance to go inside the building or you will be waiting at the her feet for hours. This is almost a number one spot for vacationers, schools to showcase our history and heritate from all walks of life. So the streets are busy with tourism booming all around. Even the 911 water fountains bringing in friends/ faimily all year round, needs a ten day in advance reservations to just see the wall. Well, I thought making the reservations online and request that this would be available for us. We where informed that the shuttle was every thirty minutes to the ferry. Awesome all excited but, no one told us to make reservations at the statue as well. I just assumed this was all part of the ferry. Nope, not the case. well disappointed on this part of the trip. But, easily corrected now for our next trip. Book reservations and ask more questions. But, the trip still had it's highlights.
Get the Facts ~ Parking
Now we had to hang in the Manhatten side of New York to take care of our buisness before our weekend started. But, a must do on our list to stop to the Moroccain embassy to handle our business affairs. This is very Important fact to mention the parking.They will kill you with unexpected charges for parking previlliages. Even the Native new yorkers are killed with this same injustice of prices. You can park for one hour to even three hours and they will charge you a full day parking fee. So, these are just some of the thngs to be ware of on your trip. If you try to rebuttle this. They pretent to not understand english or just down right ignore you. So, the truth is they just plain scam you in the open. Now, we made it through our night mare of driving through the traffic after two hours to bridge from Manhatten side to the Bookly side that our day was almost shot.

Comfort Inn Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.
One of the beauties of this trip was that the Hotel was quite nice. Supprising after the entrance in, I thought I made another boo boo. The road to the hotel was a little bit like driving into an industral business area. Asuming that even the trip from the Manhatten side to get to the Brooklyn side was a feet in itself. Long roads of traffic. This is a very hopping hotel and filled with many exciting people from all around the world. Just so you know there is a shuttle service to the terminal but, this is an extra fee. then you have to pay ferry fees. and don't forget to make your reservations to the Statue of Liberty. or any of the Manhattan feature sites. Make sure you book you visit.
