MANHATTAN, NY (WPIX) — The crown of the Statue of Liberty will welcome visitors Tuesday for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down much of New York City in 2020.
The reopening was announced on tourism group NYCgo’s Instagram page in a post with three photos of the New York landmark.
Those planning to visit the statue should book tickets well in advance, as slots fill up months in advance, the Post advised. It also noted that Statue City Cruises is the only service offering access to Lady Liberty and Ellis Island to warn of other ferry services claiming to go there.
Like much of New York City, the statue ceased operations when the coronavirus swept the Big Apple in March 2020.
The grounds of Liberty Island reopened in July 2020, and the observation deck atop the statue’s base reopened nearly a year later, according to the National Park Service.
