NEW YORK (AP) — The National Park Service says summer operating hours at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island begin Memorial Day weekend.

Boats will depart Battery Park in Lower Manhattan and Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, at 8:30 a.m. seven days a week.

There will also be an extra departure from both locations at 5 p.m. each day.

The last boats back to Manhattan and Jersey City will depart at 6:45 p.m.

The hours will be in effect from May 24 through Sept. 1.

Advance ticket purchases are required for visits to the Statue of Liberty's crown and observation deck and the museum of immigration on Ellis Island. They are available through the park's concessioner Statue Cruises at www.StatueCruises.com .
