If you just want to get close to the statue on a ferry, save your money and ride the Staten Island ferry,which is free.

If you take the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island ferry, make sure you book online in advance.  Otherwise you will be stuck in a hideous ticket line.

Christmas time in NYC is absolutely the best!! It’ll be quite windy so make sure your neck and feet as warm so that you can keep exploring.

Definitely walk up 5th Ave and see the window displays and end in central park. The park in the winter is really nice. I enjoyed a stroll there myself last january.

There are SO MANY restaurants that there’s really no point giving you recommendations. I dont know where you’re from and if you’re familiar with Yelp.com but use that site. It will give you all the food information you need. If you like oysters, a fun think to do is go to Mermaid Inn on 2nd Ave and 5th St before 7PM on a week day and get $1 oysters during their happy hour. They have good drinks too. If you like pastrami then the experience at Katz’s is worth the wait. Those sandwiches are amazinggggg.

My favorite chocolate chip cookie is at Birdbath Bakery. There are a couple of locations, look it up.

Basically, organize a food tour for yourself. I have yet to eat better food anywhere!!
