 The Grand Reopening Of Statue of Liberty's Crown

Following the conclusion of a year's repairs, tourists will be able to climb up into the crown of the Statue of Liberty starting Sunday.

Once inside Lady Liberty's head, visitors get the same view of New York Harbor and the skyscrapers of Manhattan that the famous monument has yielded for more than a century.

But access to the crown, reached by a tightly spiraled staircase going up the interior of the monument, will be limited.

"It is sold out for one month. There are 315 visitors per day allowed," Katie Lawhon, a spokeswoman, said.

The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France to America, is this country's iconic symbol of freedom and immigration. It closed for upkeep exactly a year ago after celebrating its 125th anniversary.

The $27.25 million renovation aimed to improve the stairway into the crown and add safety devices and other modern requirements.
