The statue has been closed since Sandy struck the region on Oct. 29, damaging much of the island’s infrastructure. The statue itself is on higher ground and was not damaged.
“We are delighted that Lady Liberty will once again be open to the public. We look forward to providing a safe and enjoyable experience to all of our visitors,” announced Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island Superintendent David Luchsinger. “We appreciate the extraordinary efforts of all of those who are working diligently to re-open the park.”
