Statue of Liberty illuminated again for first time since Hurricane Sandy
The Statue of Liberty was illuminated Friday evening for the first time since it was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
The statue, one of the city’s top tourist attractions, has been closed because of damage resulting from the storm that hit New York Oct. 29, with no estimate on when it will reopen to visitors.
The monument, reports the Associated Press, was re-lit through temporary measures made possible by a donation of equipment and services from Musco Lighting to the National Park Foundation, which is the official charity of America’s national parks, according to a statement from the National Park Service.
Another company, Natoli Construction, handled the lighting of the statue’s torch and crown.
