Cape Town – Alec Baldwin planned for a family day to see the Statue of Liberty over the weekend – but things didn’t quite work out as planned.

"Kids in tow," he shared on Instagram, he and wife, Hilaria headed out to South Ferry for what should’ve been a beautiful day in the city. Except... it was the wrong city.

"So, we head to South Ferry. Me and @hilariabaldwin. Two sharp, savvy NYers. Kids in tow.

"We buy the tickets for the 'boat tour' of the Statue of Liberty. We are escorted to a shuttle bus.

"To New Jersey!

"I kid you not. We paid. Then we read the tickets. NO ONE EVER MENTIONED NEW F***ING JERSEY!!!

"This is a scam," he said. "Take the SI Ferry. It’s the best ride in NY."


It turned out to be a pretty fantastic day for the Baldwins though – and they eventually made it to see the Statue of Liberty.

The 30 Rock actor later posted a video of his son on the ferry. "Just a NY kid," he captioned it.
