Thought I would make everyone aware of this notice from the National Park Service regarding procedural changes visits to Lady Liberty:
"The Security Screening Facility has been moved from Ellis Island to both of the Battery Park and Liberty State Park departure locations. The time of your ticket is now your security entrance time, not the boat departure time. After passing through security, you will board the next available boat for your trip over to Liberty Island."
Not a big deal but could skew time schedules a bit as it appears you will now be boarding the boat to Liberty Island a bit later!
