About Statue Of Liberty, New York City

The statue was designed by a young French sculptor, Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. The statue's face was modeled after his mother's and the story goes that the body was modeled after a prostitute. The crown of Lady Liberty, as the statue is often affectionately called, has seven spikes, symbolizing the Seven Seas across which liberty should be spread. In her left hand she holds a tablet with the Declaration of Independence and in her right hand a torch, symbolizing Enlightenment.

The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument. She is a beloved friend, a living symbol of freedom to millions around the world. These exhibits are a tribute to the people who created her, to those who built and paid for her, to the ideals she represents, and to the hopes she inspires. The Statue of Liberty exhibit, which opened in July 1986 and is located on the second floor in the pedestal of the Statue, traces the history and symbolism of the Statue of Liberty through museum objects, photographs, prints, videos and oral histories. In addition to historical artifacts and descriptive text, full scale replicas of the Statue's face and foot are also on display. ￼ ￼ PLAN YOUR VISIT TODAY! The main historical sections include: From Idea to Image, Fabricating the Statue, Stretching Technology, Fundraising in France, The Pedestal, Fundraising in America, and Complete at Last. The next area focuses on the symbolism of Liberty with sections titled Mother of Exiles, Becoming the Statue of America, Century of Souvenirs, The Image Exploited and The Statue in Popular Culture. The Torch Exhibit ￼ ￼ The Torch Exhibit includes the original 1886 torch and much altered flame in the lobby. On the second floor balcony overlooking this torch is a display on the history of the torch and flame, explaining the various alterations through diagrams, photographs, drawings and cartoons. "The New Colossus" The famous sonnet written by Emma Lazarus in 1883. A bronze plaque, dedicated in memory of Emma Lazarus' contribution to the completion of the Statue's pedestal, has been affixed to the inner walls of the pedestal since the early 1900's. This plaque, currently located in the Statue of Liberty exhibit, has come to symbolize the statue's universal message of hope and freedom for immigrants coming to America and people seeking freedom around the world.
Booked tickets to go up into the crown. Highly recommend. The stairwell is indeed very very narrow (width-wise), the steps are very shallow (particularly disconcerting when descending), and steep (higher than the normal tread of a stair. Wear comfortable, stable shoes. Don't be embarrassed to pull over and stop for a breather--also cool because you can see into the body of the statue when you do. Did not find all the steps challenging to climb from an exertion standpoint, but it required holding your entire body at attention, and holding on with two hands, so it was an effort for sure. The crown area is tiny, and the views are not particularly phenomenal (hello, Sunset Park), but the experience is fantastic. Loved being able to stay as long as I wanted, basically, and having the flexibility of exploring on the pedestal level as well.
You must reserve a Crown ticket! The pedestal view is nice but the crown is so neat. The tickets sell out quick. Plan on purchasing tickets at least 2 months in advance. Preferably more if you can. I reserved my tickets 2 months in advance and all the weekends and Fridays were taken for the entire month! So I settled for a Thursday afternoon. The pedestal has plenty of space for good photos so you should have no trouble obtaining a great picture. There are a lot of stairs to climb but if you want to wait you can take the elevator up to the pedestal. The crown is a different story. It's a small winding staircase that seems to go on forever. But it's all worth it for the amazing view and having the bragging rights of making it to the top :-) Enjoy!
They say that when you are able to visit the Statue of Liberty in New York, you are one of the luckiest people to have seen such an amazing place! One of the most exciting parts of the tour before you go to Lady Liberty statue is the boat trip to Ellis Island. You will see how beautiful and diverse the American nation is. After touring, we felt hungry and we are so pleased that there is a restaurant in the place. It is a very pleasant recreational and educational experience for me and my husband as we are Asians. We took a lot of very beautiful photos too! :)
The historic landmark is so monetized it is disgusting. There is a very sturdy bridge to Ellis island that is not utilized for pedestrians. I was told “the bridge is in disrepair and cannot support the expected foot traffic weight”. I personally saw many government vehicles crossing over the bridge which I find disturbing. The public should have more access to the national treasure. There is too much political influence in this Statue and how the public is given access! This was my first time visiting NY and the iconic statue and these issues were very apparent to me. The food on the island is overpriced and distasteful. The lockers were cash only and the ATM charged to withdraw money. There was not one aspect of the experience I felt was not a money shake down! I cannot imagine Eiffel intended his artistic iconic statue would be used in this manner! Disgraceful
