Statue of Liberty
Mo to Su from 09:30 AM to 05:00 PM
Lady Liberty, representative of freedom to the world, towers over the New York Harbor. Created by Frenchman Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, the statue was a gift from France to the United States to note the country's acceptance of immigrants following a common dream. Visitors are shadowed by the statue's staggering height, often enhanced by lighting and video systems surrounding the landmark. View the inside of the statue through a glass ceiling or walk onto the observation deck to see the glittering city and its harbor. With a torch and a tablet of law in each hand, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable landmarks of not only the city but the country as well.
