Statue of Liberty National Monument
• Liberty Island | New York, NY | 1004
An enduring symbol of the American value of freedom, the Statue of Liberty, now designated as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations, stands with her flaming torch overlooking New York Harbour. The statue was presented to the USA by the people of France and first dedicated in 1886. Over the years "Lady Liberty" has become symbolic of the country itself and has achieved iconic status. The Statue of Liberty was the first thing millions of immigrants saw as they entered New York Harbor and commenced their new life in the United States. Guided tours of the statue are available. The statue is reached by ferry from either Manhatten or New Jersey. Access to the top of the Statue is closed several hours before the park closes so allow plenty of time including ferry transit. Visitors are advised that during the winter, hours of visitation are reduced.
