Statue of Liberty to Reopen on July 4

It's been a long few years, but it looks like the Statue of Liberty is finally back and ready to receive visitors again. The not-at-all symbolic reopening will take place tomorrow, July 4.

The Statue closed for renovations in 2011 and reopened in October, 2012...one day before Hurricane Sandy hit and damaged the ferry dock. The statue, and neighboring Ellis Island, had to close once again for repairs

According to the New York Times, tours of the statue are booked until next Wednesday, and the crown until August. Ellis Island, meanwhile, is still closed, and no opening date has been announced.
