Bot meneruskan perjalanan. Kali ni ke Statue Of Liberty.
Away we go...
The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.
Tapi bot cuma lalu dekat je. Tak berlabuh. Kalau nak, kena naik bot lain dan ada extra fee. Tak mahal pun. Yang mahal ialah masa.
Ramai orang nak naik atas crown tu tapi kena reserve dan ada quota: Reservations to Visit the Crown are limited to 240 people per day.
- Security Screening: Visitors to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island must pass through security screening (similar to airport security procedures) before boarding the ferry system and again before entering the monument. Visitors with Pedestal or Crown reservations must complete their second security screening before 3:30 PM. We encourage visitors with reservations to board a ferry before 1:00 PM.
Artist Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, who was known for large-scale work, was commissioned to design this sculpture. Nothing happened for some time, but finally (in 1874) Bartholdi came to the United States to look for a location for his monument. He saw Bedloe's Island from his ship as he sailed into the New York Harbor, and realized it would be a perfect location - since here his statue would always have an audience.
The tragedy of September 11, 2001 resulted in the closure of Liberty Island. The island re-opened after 100 days, however the Statue remained closed until August 3, 2004 when the pedestal level was opened for visitation. On July 4, 2009, the Crown of the Statue of Liberty was reopened to the public. Visitors must make a reservation to climb to the top of the Pedestal or to the Statue's Crown.
