Statue of Liberty re-opens

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK - The Statue of Liberty, which had been closed since the destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy, re-opened to the public this 4th of July.

Repairs to brick walkways and docks were still underway, but much of the work had been completed since Sandy swamped most of the national landmark's 12 acre site and the U.S. Parks Department welcomed a large crowd for the holiday.

The statue was spared in the fall storm but Lady Liberty's little island took a serious beating. Railings broke, docks and paving stones were torn up and buildings were flooded.
