Start making your holiday plans now because the Statue of Liberty’s crown has reopened for business after September the 11th denied sightseers the thrill on safety grounds.

And in the summer this lady is hot stuff says a guide: “So she’s like 20 degrees hotter inside than she is from the outside. So just because it’s 75 or 60 outside doesn’t mean she’s 75 or 60 inside.” Initially the crown will be able to handle 50 000 visitors a year.
