After years of being closed to the public, Lady Liberty's crown is slated to reopen this Independence Day. While the base of the iconic statue has remained open to visitors, trips to the crown were halted due to security concerns after the September 11 terrorist attacks. Some Say the decision to reopen the crown represents greater confidence in our national security. Others are simply looking forward to seeing the outstanding view from the top.
Whatever the reason for making the trip, both the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island require plenty of attention to keep them preserved for future generations and safe for visitors. If you'd like to be a part of preserving these American landmarks, consider making a contribution to the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation.
