Statue of Liberty

Liberty Island, New York

New York’s iconic neoclassical sculpture has welcomed immigrants to the States since it was erected in 1886. But public access to the famously crowned statue has been off and on since the 1980s, and it most recently closed last fall due to infrastructure damages from Hurricane Sandy. Good news: The National Park Service confirmed the statue will reopen to the public on July 4 this year.
