It's unclear whether the Baldwins actually boarded the New Jersey-bound bus, which would have transported them through the Holland Tunnel to Liberty State Park in Jersey City - the location mentioned on the bottom of the ticket.
The 30 Rock star and wife Hilaria wanted to take their four children to go and see the iconic NY monument in style, so chose to shell out on US$40 tickets after a bogus ticket seller promised they were for a tour of Liberty Island, where the statue is located.
The 61-year-old star thought he was buying Statue of Liberty tour tickets for himself, his wife, Hilaria, and their four youngest children - daughter Carmen and sons Rafael, Leonardo, and baby Romeo when they arrived in Battery Park in downtown Manhattan. But they were instead escorted to a shuttle bus to New Jersey.More news: Alexandria men wanted in killing of witness at Amber Guyger's trial
Luckily, Baldwin and his family made the best of the bad situation by jumping on the Staten Island - which is free. "To New Jersey! I kid you not", he railed in the post, which include a shot of the tickets which cost $40 apiece.
Still, it's slightly satisfying to imagine the famed, sometimes insufferable Hollywood actor and "Saturday Night Live" Trump impersonator falling for the same type of tourist-trap scam that so many everyday folks from the hinterlands fall for.

Baldwin said he couldn't believe "two sharp, savvy NYers" - his wife is also a longtime New Yorker - fell for it. "This is a scam", he wrote of Tours R Us, which comes up with poor reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp.
Tourists are frequently conned by shady operators selling tours that don't go to Liberty Island. It's the best ride in NY'.
