Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty is a UNESCO World Heritage Site made of copper donated by the people of France to the United States of America.  It was built by Gustave Eiffel from the design of Frederic Auguste Bartholdi.

To get there, we parked our car in the Liberty State Park and boarded the Statue Cruises for $18 to see the the statue's pedestal.  There were two stopovers: Ellis Island and Liberty Island.

The cruise took around 25 minutes.  All visitors had to passby metal detectors and e-ray machines for security purposes. Here's a video I took of Lady Liberty while on our way back to New Jersey.
