We are fortunate to have a creative bunch of folks that provide comments to the National Parks Traveler. Using our combined brain power, what do you think would be the best way to restore access to the crown of the Statue of Liberty? New stairs? An elevator? Provide very limited access? Provide no access? What is your opinion?
Statue of Liberty
UPDATED: The United States Congress is mad at the National Park Service. Congress cannot figure out why the parks are not listening them, after they've been asked more than once by the House to open up the crown of the Statue of Liberty. Congress has given unsolicited money to Liberty to get it open, and there had been a campaign which raised millions from across the nation for the same purpose, but still, 6 years after it was closed, there remains no public access to the crown.
The National Park Service has set up an online web exhibit that remembers the human response to Sept. 11, 2001. The exhibit is a few years old (probably created in 2002), but the content is still meaningful and relevant today.
After almost 6 years, is it time to open up the crown of the Statue of Liberty to visitors again? The House of Representatives says yes, but the National Park Service is expressing concerns for visitor safety. Also, a new concessionaire to run the ferry operation to the statue.
