Today, on July 4th, the Statue of Liberty will be reopened, inviting visitors to visit the pedestal and the crown for the first time since Superstorm Sandy pummeled the Mid-Atlantic region last fall.
Visiting Liberty Island, or circling it in on the ferry is one of the most rewarding experiences of any trip to New York City.
