Best Architecture Locations in the World: Statue of Liberty

It may be hard to believe for us, but one of the most popular architecture locations to visit in the world is the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty is a neoclassical, realistic sculpture and was created by Frederic Bartholdi, Gustave Eiffel, and Richard Morris Hunt. It was given to the United States by the French in 1886 and placed in the New York Harbor to be a welcome to all Americans returning, visitors, and immigrants.

The Statue of Liberty plays a very large part in tourism for the government and especially the state of New York. After 9/11, the government shut down tourist access throughout the Statue of Liberty because of safety issues but later re-opened it in 2004 with different access laws… No one was allowed to go up to the crown, which is the actual viewing deck of the whole statue and the reason why people visit it.

Since then, laws have changed again and people are allowed to  go up to the crown but no further than that. We are lucky to have this beautiful sculpture in our country and to have taken such great care of it. Get your tickets to see the Statue of Liberty now or visit Ellis Island online!
