Fun Fact: Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, the statue is one of the best known symbols of not just freedom, but of the United States itself. The statue was a gift to the country from the people of France. It was designed by the French architect Frédéric Bartholdi who modeled the statue after Libertas, the Roman Goddess of Freedom.
Construction of Lady Liberty began in 1870 but was delayed many times due to fundraising issues. While the rest of the statue was still being designed, the head and the torch holding arm toured the world in an effort to gain support for the completion of the statue. After many fundraising efforts, including one by Joseph Pulitzer, the publisher of the New York World paper, the statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
Today, a ferry service is provided to take you out to visit the statue. Provided it is not being renovated, you can stop by the museum housed in the pedestal, and, if you are feeling particularly athletic, climb the staircase all the way to the observatory in the crown.
