News: Reopen Statue Of Liberty
May 23rd, 2006

A Daily News editorial echoes the call of public officials for the federal government to reopen the Statue of Liberty to the public by the Fourth of July. The spiral staircase and the crown with the windows looking upon the harbor have been closed since September 11, 2001. “Security is no excuse. Every visitor already must pass through a metal detector before boarding the boat to Liberty Island and again when entering the statue’s pedestal for a reservation-only tour. Adding tours of the crown should be simple enough.”
