Lady Liberty—or Liberty Enlightening the World, as she’s officially known—was a gift from France on America’s 100th birthday. A universal symbol of freedom, the copper-plated sentinel stands 305 feet tall from the bottom of her base to the tip of her torch. The monument's grand reopening on the Fourth of July 2013 comes after almost two years of construction and Hurricane Sandy-related closures. Reservations are required for a tour of the statue’s interior and to trek up to her iconic crown.
