Statue of Liberty Closed

New York’s most iconic lady has also been brought to her knees by a lady of similar power—Sandy. The Statue of Liberty, along with Ellis Island, is powerless after Liberty Island—where the two landmarks are located—sustained water damage. The statue itself is fine, but tourists might be kept away for some time. “Currently, the islands are closed for the foreseeable future. Until the assessment is done, we cannot determine when both islands will reopen,” a spokeswoman for the National Parks of New York Harbor said Friday. The docks and grounds are reportedly still in bad shape.
