Just a day after a newly renovated Statue of Liberty reopened to the public last fall, Superstorm Sandy blew through, submerging 75 percent of Liberty Island. The statue itself wasn’t damaged, but the docks, a brick promenade, railings and other facilities were, and access to the statue was shut off again. Eight months later, Lady Liberty will reopen on the Fourth of July. Tickets are now on sale, including a limited number of tickets for the climb to the crown.
