Statue-of-Liberty-Reopening

The Statue of Liberty, hit hard by Superstorm Sandy in October and closed for repairs, is now back in business — just in time for Independence Day.

The storm’s 14-foot surge had flooded about 75 percent of the island, destroying water and sewer systems, and wrecking docks and paths.

Coincidentally, the storm hit the statue just a day after celebrations for its 126th dedication anniversary, The New York Post reported. It reopened, fully repaired, on Wednesday.
