With the right insurance through New York

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the rental car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Los Angeles.

The islands in Upper New York Bay are best reached by ferry from Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan. There are good parking facilities in this area, so it is easy to get there by car rental. Highlights of the excursion include a visit to the Statue of Liberty and the Immigration Museum.
