The Statue of Liberty is located on Liberty Island, a small island located in the New York Harbor. The statue took four months to assemble. Originally built by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, it was shipped in 350 pieces from France. The resulting structure is a neoclassical sculpture made of granite.
The Statue of Liberty was built to honor the Roman goddess of freedom Libertas. The pedestal was designed to give visitors a panoramic view of New York Harbor and Ellis Island. The pedestal is a bit over half the height of Lady Liberty.
The new Statue of Liberty Museum is a 26,000 square foot building that opened in May 2019. It cost more than $100 million to build and is considered one of the city's architectural wonders.
One of the best ways to see the Statue of Liberty is by taking a day trip from New York or New Jersey. Tickets are available online and at the Statue of Liberty Museum. These tickets usually include a $2 discount on the ferry ride and admission to the crown of the statue.
