It's been a long time since I've been to the Crown of the Statue of Liberty, and when I went, I had to wait in a long line and it took a long time. But, now I see you can purchase advance tickets. By doing so, does this eliminate the long lines and wait times? Or, is there still a long wait etc? To visit the Statue of Liberty and go up to the Crown, how much time should I allow, including boat time there and back from Battery Park? Essentially, I'd like to plan other things for our NYC visit and just trying to figure out how to schedule all that we might want to see and do, and knowing estimated duration times will help. Thanks so much for your information.
