I go to the Statue of Liberty!
Here I am at the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. It was a gift from France, they sent us all of the materials, and the Americans built it here. It is made of bronze, so was originally brown, but it oxidized and turned this lovely shade of green.
Here I am at the back of the Statue of Liberty. It's only an island, where the statue is, so we had to take the Liberty Cruise Ferry to get there. There is usually a lot of people visiting the statue, but fortunately on the day I went, it was not too crowded.
Here I am looking at the Liberty Bike. It is a motorcycle, and some of the details are like the statue- such as the liberty crown on the wheel of the bike. It was really neat to see!
Here I am at the Freedom Tower near Battery Park, in downtown Manhattan. Lots of tours go there, it was crowded! They are building this building to replace the original World Trade Center buildings, and the name is symbolic of our freedom and hope for all in the future.
