Walk on the reverse side of Liberty
• on the back of the Liberty Walk
Despite the loud title of this post is just the place, which is behind of the famous Statue of Liberty. About statue know everything, and that's about what lies behind it is not many who came to New York.
In spite of the proximity to Manhattan, the place is surprisingly deprived of attention from the locals, tourists and photographers. The people there are of course there, but the amount is not comparable with the crowds, which can be found in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Therefore, the pictures from there a little, and some angles I have never seen. Even those who got there, rarely go to the park trails, although if you deviate to the side, you'll find absolutely extraordinary views of the long-familiar object.
The place is called the Liberty State Park. The last time I made the same mistake that makes most of the tourists. I walked there, where all the walk and drove back to Manhattan. At this time, I discovered a completely different species. Next will be a minimum of information and a large number of indecent photographs with views of Manhattan and the famous green girl.

Station Central Railroad of New Jersey dating from 1889. Once passengers trains from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and other cities come up on this shore of the Hudson, and transplanted to the ferry to Manhattan. In 1967, the movement scheme changed and the station was abandoned. The building was restored, and the platform is still in ruins. At last my visit I noticed the wooden flooring for the station area ingots. After the hurricane they were replaced by tiles.
The remains of the old piers. They previously were not in the best condition, but Hurricane Sandy struck them completely.

apron and canopy built in 1914. Since then, they have never been repaired and are in disrepair.
After the storm cleared of vegetation that covers the entire interior. Because of this there were interesting species.
Next comes the area of the park, which once was one great railway junction. With the relatively recent time here green grass and large spaces with spectacular views.
It is possible to combine nature and known to all objects.
Combining, until you get bored.
A bright against the dark Manhattan - is Ellis Island, which once was the largest point of the reception of immigrants in the United States. From 1892 to 1954 12 million people passed through its walls. About 240 000 of them were refused and were forced to return home. Now the island is a museum of immigration.
To visit is available only a small part of the island. The rest is in a semi-abandoned state.
