Paris To New York: 127 Years Of The Statue Of Liberty, In Photos
On 4 July last week, the Statue of Liberty re-opened to the public after an eight-month closure to repair the damage wrecked by Superstorm Sandy—in honor of this, The Atlantic has published a photo essay that traces Lady Liberty’s existence that spans over 130 years.
Originally a gift of friendship from France to the United States, this world-famous piece of art has become one of the most iconic and enduring images of New York City.
From its birth in Paris to its most recent re-opening, the 151-foot tall statue has withstood many a storm and bore witness to some of the most significant events in New York’s history during its 127 years at York Harbor.
Whether or not you have already visited her, this photo series would still be an interesting read—take a good look at the Statue of Liberty, both inside and out, over here.
