The "30 Rock" star, wife Hilaria Baldwin and three of their four kids were granted access to a restricted area on the boat to snap a family photo - after complaining to the crew about their almost-failed tour of the Statue of Liberty. We paid. Then we read the tickets.

Baldwin posted on Instagram Sunday that he and his wife, Hilaria, "Two sharp, savvy NYers", bought $40 tickets for themselves and their children for a boat tour of the Statue of Liberty and were escorted to a shuttle bus to New Jersey. The tickets the Baldwin family purchased were not for a simple ferry ride from the southern tip of Manhattan, but would require them to board a shuttle bus and ride all the way to Liberty State Park in Jersey City - a Baldwin. traveling to New Jersey?. the hypocrisy! - and then catch a boat that wouldn't even let them off on Liberty Island itself.

"Take the SI Ferry".

Of course, Liberty Island is located in New Jersey waters, but that's not what Baldwin was referring to.

"Ahahahahahhahahahahaaaahaa well listen, a shuttle bus can be fun too!" said "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star Ellie Kemper in reply to Baldwin's post.

There's no doubt that the Cardinals were gutted, given the blown lead and the effort by Wainwright. "No question about it". The club still has work to do if they are to establish their first three-game win streak in 41 postseason outings.

It's a bit of a wonder a long-timer New Yorker like Baldwin would fall for such a cliche tourist con job.

The Daily News reports the shuttle bus transports passengers from downtown ny to New Jersey, where they get on a boat that offers views of the Statue of Liberty.

He may have gotten taken for a ride like a New York City tourist - but Alec Baldwin had the red carpet rolled out for him and his kin while cruising on the Staten Island Ferry.

Luckily, Baldwin and his family made the best of the bad situation by jumping on the Staten Island - which is free. Hilaria, 35, posted the evidence that they did, in fact, end up seeing the Statue of Liberty.
