September 11, 2001: The twin towers of the World Trade Center burn with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground.
After the September 11 attacks in 2001, it was closed for reasons of safety and security; the pedestal reopened in 2004
The statue is of a robed 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.
A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
The statue was constructed in France, shipped overseas in crates, and assembled on the completed pedestal on what was then called Bedloe's Island
