American- Lady Liberty crown Is Back

  • America's statue of Liberty will be opened to the public from July 4 announced Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.
  • The statue, whose crown was shuttered by the Bush administration after 9/11 will be reopened to the public again.
  • The planned reopening followed a long security review that will lead to some safety fixes, including new, higher handrails for the winding, 168-step staircase.
  • Only three parties of 10 will be allowed inside at once: one climbing up, one down and one in the crown, with each escorted by a National Park Service ranger.
  • Even an invitation was extended to Obama to become the first person up the steps on July 4.He's a tall guy and he may have to bend over as he goes up that double helix stairwell.
