Even a New Yorker occasionally falls victim to a good NYC tourist scam artist. 30 Rock alum Alec Baldwin shared his recent tale of woe on Instagram.
He said that he and his wife Hilaria bought what they thought were $40 tickets for a “boat tour” of the Statue of Liberty. He shared a snap of the “Tours R Us” ticket, writing: “We are escorted to a shuttle bus. To New Jersey! I kid you not. We paid. Then we read the tickets. NO ON EVER MENTIONED NEW F***ING JERSEY!!! This is a scam.”
Baldwin picked the ticket up at the South Ferry. Eventually, Alec and Hilaria took their four kids to the Staten Island Ferry for a free ride, and shared shots of themselves in front of the iconic beacon of freedom.
