The Battery and Liberty Island By Ship and by Sea Horse
The second week in July included one of the summer's highlights for the students, a visit to the Battery and the Statue of Liberty. Warrie Price, founder and president of the Battery Conservancy, gave them an overview of the dramatic changes in the park in the last two decades. Then it was through the park and onto a ship that took them to the Statue of Liberty. On their return to the mainland there was one more stop in the park, to enjoy the magic of the recently opened Sea Glass carousel.
