Good news! The Statue of Liberty will officially reopen her crown for sightseers this coming July 4th. It has been closed since 9/11, and after years of wrangling about security and safety concerns the go ahead was given for it to reopen.
Tickets went on sale this past weekend, and it seems that July 4, 5 and 6 are already sold out.
I already told you about the CityPass. Combine that with the additional $3 ticket for Liberty’s crown and you’ll have a full day in Lower Manhattan.
