They'll be charging $35 for adults, and $15 for kids—a fee that includes a ride there and back from Statue Cruises. an hour or two stay, and dinner. The chief operating officer of the Statue Cruises told the NY Times that last year "everybody either had a date or a tripod."
NOTE: You can't REALLY get married there. It doesn't have an address, it's in JERSEY, and they'll be pretty strict. BUT, you could take the ferry, have part of the ceremony, go back and sign the papers back on the dock in Manhattan. Just saying. Beth knows how to do this, so if you're interested, we'll send you to her. She also knows a great location down by Battery Park with a FREE view of Miss Liberty for dusk weddings..
