The Statue Of Liberty’s Crown Reopens Today

Lady Liberty  has been closed since right after the terrorists attack on 9/11.   In order to get to the top, you have to climb 354 steps.   All the tickets sold out fast for the reopening.

Among the Statue of Liberty’s changes since closing: improved, higher handrails on the main staircase; an enhanced the public address system; and starting this Fourth of July, stricter limits on visitors.

Other Remodeling:

Beginning in 1982 the Statue of Liberty—with scaffolding eventually obscuring it from toes to torch—began undergoing a major restoration timed to the statue’s centennial in 1986.

The biggest 1980s change was the replacement of Liberty’s torch.
