July 4 reopening of the Statue of Liberty

July 4, 2013

The Statue of Liberty reopened today after being closed to the public for nearly two years. Following the 125th anniversary celebration of the statue’s unveiling, on October 28, 2011, the statue was closed for a planned interior renovation project. The greatly anticipated reopening a year later included new public access to her crown—but lasted only one day! On October 29, 2012 Superstorm Sandy closed the island and left behind considerable damage. But today the island and the statue celebrate the Fourth of July by welcoming visitors once again.
