  • Alec Baldwin angry after getting fooled by infamous NYC tourist scam

Baldwin posted to Instagram a picture of a ticket he and his wife, Hilaria, "two sharp, savvy NYers", bought at the city's South Ferry for themselves and their four kids to take a boat tour around the Statue of Liberty. However, he, his wife Hilaria and their children were shocked to discover they had actually paid for a three-hour shuttle bus trip to New Jersey - for Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

New York City Department of Transportation spokesman Scott Gastel said the shuttle bus the Baldwins were directed to transports passengers from lower Manhattan to New Jersey, where they get on a boat that offers views of the Statue of Liberty.

The Baldwins were let in after he told crew members about their experience getting ripped off by the tour operator, the DOT said.

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

The special treatment was memorialized in a post on Hilaria's Instagram on Sunday - the same day the volatile actor exploded on his own account about being ripped off by a phony Statue of Liberty tour operator. "It's the best ride in NY". "No one ever mentioned New F***ing Jersey!"

De Blasio said Baldwin's online rant had nothing to do with the city announcing its latest crackdown.

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.

The $40 Baldwin paid per ticket is also far more than the $18.50 charged by Statue Cruises - the company that has an exclusive contract with the National Park Service to take people to Liberty Island. There have also been reports of scammers selling tickets to the Staten Island Ferry, which is free. The Baldwins ended up taking the Staten Island Ferry, which is free.
