What people are saying:

The Statue of Liberty, a 100-year-old French gift to the United States of America, holds the Firehouse in her right hand and the Declaration of Independence in her left, symbolizing the American people's yearning for freedom and democracy. At night, the lights at the bottom of the statue shine on the Statue of Liberty, looking like a blue jade sculpture.

Introduction

Set on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty is arguably the symbol of New York City. Originally a gift from France to commemorate the centenary of US independence, it stood as a beacon welcoming generations of immigrants into the United States when nearby Ellis Island was the nation's primary port of entry. Reproduced countless times around the world in struggles for liberty and justice, the Statue of Liberty is a potent reminder of the power of ideas and the foundational myths in US history. Visitors can tour Liberty Island and ascend into the statue provided it is not closed for security or repair. Many people enjoy the free trip on the Staten Island Ferry, which passes near Liberty Island and allows one to imagine what it must have been like sailing into New York Harbor for the first time.
