The Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island is very cool, but it will kill too much of your time and you won't be able to see much else of the city if you go there.
The subways are definitely the way to get around the city.
Cool. Good to know. I figured the Statue of Liberty would take too much time. I'm sure I can get a good picture of it from somewhere else without having to actually ferry over there.
We're being dropped off in Rockefeller Center at 7am or so. We're planning on getting an all-day subway pass, but I can't find out when the pass starts for the day. In DC, you couldn't use it until 9:30. I'm sure we could walk around there until we can use our passes.
