Statue of Liberty National Monument

The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States.
The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
The statue is situated in Upper New York Bay on Liberty Island south of Ellis Island, which together comprise the Statue of Liberty National Monument. The ferries, which depart from Liberty State Park in Jersey City and Battery Park in Lower Manhattan, also stop at Ellis Island when it is open to the public, making a combined trip possible. Those wishing to climb the staircase within the statue to the crown purchase a special ticket, which may be reserved up to a year in advance.
