Default Lady Liberty's Crown Reopens

Pretty cool - I was privileged to be able to climb all 350+ steps and enter the crown of Lady Liberty as a 7-year-old kid in 1975. Truly awesome and I've never forgotten the experience.

On Independence Day, Liberty's Crown Reopens

By Suzanne Ma, Associated Press Writer

New York – The first visitors to Statue of Liberty's crown in nearly eight years have made the arduous climb — and one couple marked the occasion by getting engaged.

Twenty-six-year-old Aaron Weisinger (WYE'-sing-ehr) surprised his 25-year-old girlfriend, Erica Breder (BREHD-ehr), by getting down on one knee Saturday as they and eight others admired the sweeping views of New York Harbor. Breder said yes and describes the proposal as "perfect."

Both live in Walnut Creek, Calif.

The statue was closed to the public after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The base, pedestal and outdoor observation deck reopened in 2004, but the crown remained off-limits.

Thirty people an hour are now being allowed into the crown. Tickets for the July Fourth weekend sold out within hours.

I have seen her before but have never been able to go to the top I bet it has a breath taking view.

The Statue of Liberty is absolutely breathtaking and hopefully one day, I'll get to experience the climb to the top!
