Statue of Liberty
Lady Liberty, representative of freedom to the world, shines bright in New York Harbor. Created by Frenchman Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, the Statue was a gift from France to the United States. Visitors can now view the inside of the statue through a glass ceiling and capture a better image of Lady Liberty through the enhanced lighting and video system surrounding the statue. Ferries depart from Battery Park. With a torch and a book in her hands, Lady Liberty has generously welcomed immigrants and visitors for over a century.
