I wonder if anyone has recently visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, NY. On their website, it says LARGE package, backpacks, suitcase and other parcels are NOT permitted on the ferry, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. To be specific, it says: "Anything that cannot fit into a plastic milk crate" will NOT be permitted. How about a shoulder and/or backpack camera bag and a TRIPOD? I plan to shoot medium format on a tripod. How about X-Ray on films? Any hand-checks available? Any experience and advice are appreciated? Thanks.
