Starting next week, New Yorkers and tourists alike will have even more chances to visit some of the city's most famous landmarks.
The National Park Service says beginning Tuesday, visiting hours at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty will be extended.
They will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m., adding an extra hour to the normal schedule.
These new times will remain in effect until Columbus Day, October 13.
A superintendent for both sites says there has been a rise in the number of visitors this summer.
