History of the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island

The sculptors were Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, and Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, the designer of the Eiffel Tower, engineered the internal structure. The statue is 46.5 meters tall, with the foundation adding another 46.9 meters... In 1984, at the start of the Statue's restoration, the United Nations designated the Statue of Liberty as a World Heritage Site. Although the park's increased popularity resulted in the annual park visitation to reach over 5 million, the tragedy of Sep 11, 2001 resulted in the closure of Liberty Island ... Since Aug 2003 - Visit to pedestal observation deck are permitted.
