#Photography Statue of Liberty, NY
The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World), on Liberty Island New York and a Frédéric Bartholdi’s design, was built in 1886.
The statue, a gift to the US from the people of France, is of a female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
Despite loving the statue and having already the possibility of visiting NY a number of times, I must confess I never set foot on Liberty Island. I never saw any advantage on doing it just because you’ll lose a lot of precious time and NY has so much to offer. Even tough, there’s one thing which is a must to me when visiting NY: to take a ferry and just pass by it.
See you and remember, Just Go!
