Statue Of Liberty

Location: New York, NY 10004

The Statue Of Liberty is a globally recognized symbol of freedom and independence. The monument has stood in the New York harbor for well over a century, and has been the first sight of America for millions of immigrants who came to the nation by boat during the 19th and 20th centuries. The massive metal statue raises her torch over three hundred feet high. That's twenty two stories tall! Lady Liberty holds a tablet with the inscription "July 4th, 1776" in Roman numerals, referencing the day America became an independent nation.
