6 hr layover in Newark

Have a 6 hr layover in Newark and would be interested in seeing either the Statue of Liberty or the Empire state Building, do we have time to get to either one of these, and what is the easiest way to travel, any help would be appreciated.

I wouldn't leave the airport for that short amount of time but you could take NJ Transit to the station underneath Madison Sq Garden which is at 33rd and 7th, then walk to the Empire State Building which is close by on 34th, but you would not likely have time to go up to the observation deck as there is usually a line at least a few hours long.

Lady Liberty is worse since you'd need a cab which would likely get caught in traffic.

It really depends on the time of day, what the roads are like etc. It is actually easier to get into NYC then to the statue time wise due to public transportation
