After seeing a photo of the inside of the monument on the evening news, I was immediately inspired to apply for a job there, which I did. I ended up working on replacing the machine that inspects bags at one of the checkpoints (it makes sound and vibrates when a bag is out of specification). It was amazing working in that strange white cube with an ocean view. It’s a small site, so we were consistently busy from early morning until midnight, but it made me realize how large and wonderful the world is\u2014and how fortunate we all are to be able to live in it!This is a short movie about where is the statue of liberty located. Let’s watch it together. If you have any questions, please reply to this news video.

Is the torch still closed?
The torch has been closed since the "Black Tom" explosion of July 30, 1916, which was one of the largest acts of sabotage to our nation prior to the event of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Many people think they’ve been there and confuse it with climbing a spiral staircase which goes to the crown.

Yes! Although the Statue is grounded through the massive concrete and granite base she stands on; the Statue gets struck many times each year. Just how many is not known. The Statue’s height and the conductive material she’s made of, copper, makes it a structure of choice for lightning strikes.
