Take a close look at this picture. Outraged? You should be.
20 bucks. That was the price required to board a ferry and view the Statue of Liberty. Am I missing something? Is this the product of unbridled capitalism? You would think, of ALL the national symbols and sites to visit in the United States of America, the one symbol that signifies for all the world Freedom and Liberty would be a FREE site to visit. Or maybe a couple bucks at most. But 20? I would love to visit the statue of liberty and be reminded of where I live, in a land that is proud of the freedom it defends and guarantees to its citizens. Instead, I realized my wallet was short by one Jackson. Lame.
