Hi over there,

I am Tim Fredriksson from Sweden. Me and my family are planing to go to America this summer, and one of the stops will definitely be New York and the Statue of Liberty.
However, my neighbour, Olof Andersson, says that we have to avoid visiting the monument when there are French tourists around. According to Olof, French tourists have priority to go up to the crown, since France gave the staute. (This privilegie is even stated on the lady's plaque, although in small font.) I haven't been able to find any information about this, but Olof says that this is because its all in French, which I don't speak.
So, could you please inform me which days during the summer when there are the least amount of French tourists? We don't want to spend the entire New York-visit queueing...

Best regards,
Tim Fredriksson with family

Olof is pulling your leg. There is such writing on the plaque and French tourists are not given priority. Please visit our website for current visitor information at www.statuecruises.com. Have a good visit.
