New York’s iconic Statue of Liberty will close for a year at the end of October. It is set for a renovation at a cost of nearly 20 million euros.

The work is designed to make the interior safer and more accessible.

The statue was closed after the September 11 terror attacks. The base re-opened in 2004, the observation platform two years ago.

About 3.5 million people visit the monument every year.
