Statue of Liberty's crown to re-open July 4

Breaking News

The crown of the Statue of Liberty will re-open to tourists on July 4, spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff of the U.S. Interior Department said Friday.

The crown has been closed since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The National Park Service closed the crown amid worries that it would be difficult for visitors to evacuate quickly in the event of an emergency.
