Statue of Liberty

Most people wouldn't know that The Statue of Liberty is, in fact, a nickname. Bartholdi’s name for his gift was “Liberty Enlightening the World.”And that it is a unquie nick name most people wouldn't know the Statue of Liberty nickname ..... So if the Statue of Liberty was never made or given too the U.S. her name would have never been a nickname made and if it was a nickname it wouldn't be rare because having a nickname made by the Statue of Liberty is a big thing. People that have the nickname could go around saying that they have a nickname from the Statue of Liberty. There are 25 windows in the crown and that is 25 views of Liberty Island. If the Statue of Liberty was never made, people would not be able to see the amazing views they see in the Liberty's crown. People that vist the Statue of Liberty have to walk up 354 stairs to reach the crown. Therefore, if people were to want a challenge, that is a challenge to handle all of the stairs. Liberty Island is federal property within the territory of the State of New York, even though it is closer to New Jersey. So, therefore the statue is legally the state of New York's, but it seems like it should be New Jersey's property since it is closer.

The statue's 300 copper pieces were transported to America in 214 crates on the French ship Isere, which almost sank in stormy seas. That means the Statue must be heavier than most people would think. Two images of the Statue appear on a $10 bill. That is something most people wouldn't realize or know.The Statue sustained minor damage in 1916 when German saboteurs set off an explosion during World War One. The torch-bearing arm suffered the most damage, with repair work costing $100,000. The stairs in the torch were closed to the public for safety reasons, and remained closed for a while. Some people wonder why it happened...Why would they do this to the U.S. Statue for freedom. The Statue was a gift from France, given to America in 1870 and almost everyone in the U.S is grateful for us to have a Statue unlike most countries, which do not have a statue representing freedom. Private boats are not allowed to dock at Liberty and Ellis islands. Therefore the only way on is via the ferry system and most people would agree that it is safer that way.
