Statue of Liberty Reopens

This July 4 marks the reopening of the Statue of Liberty's crown, which has been closed since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Lady Liberty was closed to visitors until 2004, when its base, pedestal, and outdoor observation deck reopened, but her crown has remained closed until now. Only three parties of 10 will be allowed inside at once - one climbing up, one climbing down and one in the crown - limiting the number of daily visitors to only about 250 people a day.
