Today the Statue of Liberty’s reopens since the crown and pedestal were suspended after September 11, 2001 as a security precaution. The pedestal re-opened to visitors in 2004. It has been century the statue watched over New York Harbour. The seven sharp spikes on her crown represent the seven continents and seas. Her torch is a symbol of enlightenment. She’s the green lady recognized around the world.

“I think it had to happen. (September 11) was a terrible tragedy, but getting this reopened shows our experience and rejuvenation,” said tourist Steve Sardinia, Jr., who was visiting from Long Island. “I think it shows the ability of America to come back.”

The Statue of Liberty (French: Statue de la Liberté), officially titled Liberty Enlightening the World , is a monument that was presented by the people of France to the United States of America in 1886 to celebrate its centennial. Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans traveling by ship.

The copper-clad statue, dedicated on October 28, 1886, commemorates the centennial of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence and was given to the United States by France to represent the friendship between the two countries established during the American Revolution.

Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi sculpted the statue and obtained a U.S. patent for its structure. Maurice Koechlin—chief engineer of Gustave Eiffel’s engineering company and designer of the Eiffel Tower—engineered the internal structure. Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was responsible for the choice of copper in the statue’s construction and adoption of the repoussé technique, where a malleable metal is hammered on the reverse side.
