Statue of Liberty reopens after upgrade - Now much more accessible!!
The Statue of Liberty has been under renovation for awhile. The renovations are now complete! People who use a wheelchair or have difficulty with mobility can now access the observation level. After 126 years, the Statue of Liberty is now accessible! In light of some of the unfortunate comments made recently about people with disabilities, it is nice to redirect our attention to an important improvement. There is no doubt that this was long overdue, but it has happen and together we should all go and revisit the statue. Just stopping to notice, that we can all enjoy our history a little more today. Take a look at the CNN video of the renovations.
