There’s nothing shy about the Statue of Liberty, standing proud and tall on her very own island. It’s just that in a city of skyscrapers she’s not exactly the tallest act in town. But starting on October 28 you’ll be able to see more of her — and more of the view from her island — than in years when Lady Liberty’s crown reopens after a year of renovations. Or to quote pageant coach Victor Melling in Miss Congeniality, “‘You ‘are’ the crown!”
The crown will be open each week from Thursday through Sunday. You can take a ferry from Battery Park in lower Manhattan or Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Ferries run daily from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
