Statue of Liberty (New York, NY)


Since it was erected in 1886, the Statue of Liberty has greeted newcomers to America with one hand held high. Today, it is still a symbol of freedom to people around the world. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the statue was closed to visitors, but as of July 4, 2009, tourists can once again climb up to Lady Liberty's crown.

Visit the Statue of Liberty homepage.
