The copper may have come from multiple sources and some of it is said to have come from a mine in Visnes , Norway,  though this has not been conclusively determined after testing samples. Although plans for the statue had not been finalized, Bartholdi moved forward with fabrication of the right arm, bearing the torch, and the head. The exhibition grounds contained a number of monumental artworks to compete for fairgoers' interest, including an outsized fountain designed by Bartholdi.
During his second trip to the United States, Bartholdi addressed a number of groups about the project, and urged the formation of American committees of the Franco-American Union. Hayes , who took office the following day, selected the Bedloe's Island site that Bartholdi had proposed. On his return to Paris in , Bartholdi concentrated on completing the head, which was exhibited at the Paris World's Fair. Fundraising continued, with models of the statue put on sale. The head and arm had been built with assistance from Viollet-le-Duc, who fell ill in He soon died, leaving no indication of how he intended to transition from the copper skin to his proposed masonry pier.
Eiffel opted not to use a completely rigid structure, which would force stresses to accumulate in the skin and lead eventually to cracking. A secondary skeleton was attached to the center pylon, then, to enable the statue to move slightly in the winds of New York Harbor and as the metal expanded on hot summer days, he loosely connected the support structure to the skin using flat iron bars  which culminated in a mesh of metal straps, known as "saddles", that were riveted to the skin, providing firm support.
In a labor-intensive process, each saddle had to be crafted individually. Eiffel's design made the statue one of the earliest examples of curtain wall construction, in which the exterior of the structure is not load bearing , but is instead supported by an interior framework. He included two interior spiral staircases , to make it easier for visitors to reach the observation point in the crown.
The change in structural material from masonry to iron allowed Bartholdi to change his plans for the statue's assembly.
He had originally expected to assemble the skin on-site as the masonry pier was built; instead he decided to build the statue in France and have it disassembled and transported to the United States for reassembly in place on Bedloe's Island.
In a symbolic act, the first rivet placed into the skin, fixing a copper plate onto the statue's big toe, was driven by United States Ambassador to France Levi P. He was succeeded as chairman of the French committee by Ferdinand de Lesseps , builder of the Suez Canal. The completed statue was formally presented to Ambassador Morton at a ceremony in Paris on July 4, , and de Lesseps announced that the French government had agreed to pay for its transport to New York.
The committees in the United States faced great difficulties in obtaining funds for the construction of the pedestal. The Panic of had led to an economic depression that persisted through much of the decade. The Liberty statue project was not the only such undertaking that had difficulty raising money: In the years following the Civil War, most Americans preferred realistic artworks depicting heroes and events from the nation's history, rather than allegorical works like the Liberty statue.
Bartholdi and our French cousins had 'gone the whole figure' while they were about it, and given us statue and pedestal at once. The foundation of Bartholdi's statue was to be laid inside Fort Wood , a disused army base on Bedloe's Island constructed between and Since , it had rarely been used, though during the Civil War, it had served as a recruiting station.
The statue's foundation and pedestal were aligned so that it would face southeast, greeting ships entering the harbor from the Atlantic Ocean. Within months, Hunt submitted a detailed plan, indicating that he expected construction to take about nine months. Hunt's pedestal design contains elements of classical architecture, including Doric portals, as well as some elements influenced by Aztec architecture. The four sides are identical in appearance. Above the door on each side, there are ten disks upon which Bartholdi proposed to place the coats of arms of the states between and , there were 38 U.
Above that, a balcony was placed on each side, framed by pillars. Bartholdi placed an observation platform near the top of the pedestal, above which the statue itself rises. Financial concerns again forced him to revise his plans; the final design called for poured concrete walls, up to 20 feet 6.
His work involved design computations, detailed fabrication and construction drawings, and oversight of construction. Fundraising for the statue had begun in The committee organized a large number of money-raising events.
She initially declined, stating she could not write a poem about a statue. At the time, she was also involved in aiding refugees to New York who had fled anti-Semitic pogroms in eastern Europe. These refugees were forced to live in conditions that the wealthy Lazarus had never experienced. She saw a way to express her empathy for these refugees in terms of the statue. Even with these efforts, fundraising lagged. With the project in jeopardy, groups from other American cities, including Boston and Philadelphia, offered to pay the full cost of erecting the statue in return for relocating it.
New Yorkers displayed their new-found enthusiasm for the statue. Two hundred thousand people lined the docks and hundreds of boats put to sea to welcome the ship. Even with the success of the fund drive, the pedestal was not completed until April Immediately thereafter, reassembly of the statue began.
Eiffel's iron framework was anchored to steel I-beams within the concrete pedestal and assembled. Nevertheless, no one died during the construction.
Instead, Bartholdi cut portholes in the torch—which was covered with gold leaf —and placed the lights inside them. A ceremony of dedication was held on the afternoon of October 28, President Grover Cleveland, the former New York governor, presided over the event. President Cleveland headed the procession, then stood in the reviewing stand to see bands and marchers from across America. General Stone was the grand marshal of the parade. The route began at Madison Square , once the venue for the arm, and proceeded to the Battery at the southern tip of Manhattan by way of Fifth Avenue and Broadway , with a slight detour so the parade could pass in front of the World building on Park Row.
As the parade passed the New York Stock Exchange, traders threw ticker tape from the windows, beginning the New York tradition of the ticker-tape parade. A nautical parade began at A French flag draped across the statue's face was to be lowered to unveil the statue at the close of Evarts's speech, but Bartholdi mistook a pause as the conclusion and let the flag fall prematurely. The ensuing cheers put an end to Evarts's address.
Depew concluded the speechmaking with a lengthy address. No members of the general public were permitted on the island during the ceremonies, which were reserved entirely for dignitaries. The only females granted access were Bartholdi's wife and de Lesseps's granddaughter; officials stated that they feared women might be injured in the crush of people. The restriction offended area suffragists , who chartered a boat and got as close as they could to the island. The group's leaders made speeches applauding the embodiment of Liberty as a woman and advocating women's right to vote.
Shortly after the dedication, The Cleveland Gazette , an African American newspaper, suggested that the statue's torch not be lit until the United States became a free nation "in reality":. The expression makes us sick. This government is a howling farce. It can not or rather does not protect its citizens within its own borders.
Shove the Bartholdi statue, torch and all, into the ocean until the "liberty" of this country is such as to make it possible for an inoffensive and industrious colored man to earn a respectable living for himself and family, without being ku-kluxed , perhaps murdered, his daughter and wife outraged, and his property destroyed. The idea of the "liberty" of this country "enlightening the world," or even Patagonia , is ridiculous in the extreme. When the torch was illuminated on the evening of the statue's dedication, it produced only a faint gleam, barely visible from Manhattan.
The World characterized it as "more like a glowworm than a beacon. The United States Lighthouse Board took over the Statue of Liberty in and pledged to install equipment to enhance the torch's effect; in spite of its efforts, the statue remained virtually invisible at night. When Bartholdi returned to the United States in , he made additional suggestions, all of which proved ineffective.
He did successfully lobby for improved lighting within the statue, allowing visitors to better appreciate Eiffel's design. The statue rapidly became a landmark. Many immigrants who entered through New York saw it as a welcoming sight. Oral histories of immigrants record their feelings of exhilaration on first viewing the Statue of Liberty.
One immigrant who arrived from Greece recalled:. I saw the Statue of Liberty. And I said to myself, "Lady, you're such a beautiful! Give me a chance to prove that I am worth it, to do something, to be someone in America.
Originally, the statue was a dull copper color, but shortly after a green patina , also called verdigris , caused by the oxidation of the copper skin, began to spread. As early as it was mentioned in the press; by it had entirely covered the statue.
The Corps of Engineers also installed an elevator to take visitors from the base to the top of the pedestal. Carloads of dynamite and other explosives that were being sent to Britain and France for their war efforts were detonated, and seven people were killed.
The statue sustained minor damage, mostly to the torch-bearing right arm, and was closed for ten days. The narrow ascent to the torch was closed for public-safety reasons, and it has remained closed ever since. He claimed over 80, contributors, but failed to reach the goal. The difference was quietly made up by a gift from a wealthy donor—a fact that was not revealed until An underwater power cable brought electricity from the mainland and floodlights were placed along the walls of Fort Wood.
Gutzon Borglum , who later sculpted Mount Rushmore , redesigned the torch, replacing much of the original copper with stained glass.
On December 2, , President Woodrow Wilson pressed the telegraph key that turned on the lights, successfully illuminating the statue. After the United States entered World War I in , images of the statue were heavily used in both recruitment posters and the Liberty Bond drives that urged American citizens to support the war financially.
This impressed upon the public the war's stated purpose—to secure liberty—and served as a reminder that embattled France had given the United States the statue. The WPA also carried out restoration work within the statue, temporarily removing the rays from the statue's halo so their rusted supports could be replaced. Rusted cast-iron steps in the pedestal were replaced with new ones made of reinforced concrete;  the upper parts of the stairways within the statue were replaced, as well.
Copper sheathing was installed to prevent further damage from rainwater that had been seeping into the pedestal. During World War II, the statue remained open to visitors, although it was not illuminated at night due to wartime blackouts. It was lit briefly on December 31, , and on D-Day , June 6, , when its lights flashed "dot-dot-dot-dash", the Morse code for V, for victory.
New, powerful lighting was installed in —, and beginning on V-E Day , the statue was once again illuminated after sunset. The lighting was for only a few hours each evening, and it was not until that the statue was illuminated every night, all night. The act also mentioned the efforts to found an American Museum of Immigration on the island, which backers took as federal approval of the project, though the government was slow to grant funds for it.
The museum's backers never provided it with an endowment to secure its future and it closed in after the opening of an immigration museum on Ellis Island. Beginning December 26, , 15 anti-Vietnam War veterans occupied the statue, flying a US flag upside down from her crown. They left December 28 following a Federal Court order. A powerful new lighting system was installed in advance of the American Bicentennial in The statue was the focal point for Operation Sail , a regatta of tall ships from all over the world that entered New York Harbor on July 4, , and sailed around Liberty Island.
The statue was examined in great detail by French and American engineers as part of the planning for its centennial in Careful study had revealed that the right arm had been improperly attached to the main structure. It was swaying more and more when strong winds blew and there was a significant risk of structural failure.
In addition, the head had been installed 2 feet 0. The armature structure was badly corroded, and about two percent of the exterior plates needed to be replaced. A promotion advertised that for each purchase made with an American Express card, the company would contribute one cent to the renovation of the statue.
In , the statue was closed to the public for the duration of the renovation. Workers erected the world's largest free-standing scaffold ,  which obscured the statue from view. Liquid nitrogen was used to remove layers of paint that had been applied to the interior of the copper skin over decades, leaving two layers of coal tar , originally applied to plug leaks and prevent corrosion.
Blasting with baking soda powder removed the tar without further damaging the copper. Workers within the statue had to wear protective gear , dubbed "moon suits", with self-contained breathing circuits.
The entire puddled iron armature designed by Gustave Eiffel was replaced. Low-carbon corrosion-resistant stainless steel bars that now hold the staples next to the skin are made of Ferralium , an alloy that bends slightly and returns to its original shape as the statue moves. July 3—6, , was designated " Liberty Weekend ", marking the centennial of the statue and its reopening.
July 4 saw a reprise of Operation Sail,  and the statue was reopened to the public on July 5. Following the September 11 attacks , the statue and Liberty Island were immediately closed to the public.
The island reopened at the end of , while the pedestal and statue remained off-limits. The pedestal reopened in August ,  but the National Park Service announced that visitors could not safely be given access to the statue due to the difficulty of evacuation in an emergency. The Park Service adhered to that position through the remainder of the Bush administration. The statue, including the pedestal and base, closed on October 29, , for installation of new elevators and staircases and to bring other facilities, such as restrooms, up to code.
The statue was reopened on October 28, ,    only to close again a day later due to Hurricane Sandy. On November 8, , a Park Service spokesperson announced that both islands would remain closed for an indefinite period for repairs to be done.
The superintendent of Statue of Liberty National Monument , David Luchsinger, whose home on the island was severely damaged, stated that it would be "optimistically Both islands were ceded by New York to the federal government in Liberty Island is one of the islands that are part of the borough of Manhattan in New York. Land created by reclamation added to the 2. No charge is made for entrance to the national monument, but there is a cost for the ferry service that all visitors must use, as private boats may not dock at the island.
A concession was granted in to Statue Cruises to operate the transportation and ticketing facilities, replacing Circle Line , which had operated the service since A total of people per day are permitted to ascend: Climbers may bring only medication and cameras—lockers are provided for other items—and must undergo a second security screening.
A group of statues stands at the western end of the island, honoring those closely associated with the Statue of Liberty. They are the work of Maryland sculptor Phillip Ratner. The UNESCO "Statement of Significance" describes the statue as a "masterpiece of the human spirit" that "endures as a highly potent symbol—inspiring contemplation, debate and protest—of ideals such as liberty, peace, human rights, abolition of slavery, democracy and opportunity.
Hundreds of replicas of the Statue of Liberty are displayed worldwide. As an American icon, the Statue of Liberty has been depicted on the country's coinage and stamps. It appeared on commemorative coins issued to mark its centennial, and on New York's entry in the state quarters series.
Depictions of the statue have been used by many regional institutions. Between  and ,  New York State issued license plates with an outline of the statue. The statue is a frequent subject in popular culture. In music, it has been evoked to indicate support for American policies, as in Toby Keith 's song " Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue The Angry American ", and in opposition, appearing on the cover of the Dead Kennedys ' album Bedtime for Democracy , which protested the Reagan administration.

Cuomo Bridge at the beginning of primary week. Questions in police involved shooting Civil rights leader Alice Green and advocates for the Center for Law and Justice says the APD explanation of a police involved shooting of a year-old suspect still leaves questions about how the teen was shot in the back. Cuomo Bridge across the Tappan Zee continued with the New York Times getting a hold of an internal document in which the Cuomo admin offered the bridge contractor potential enticements to get the bridge open by late August.

Cuomo Bridge across the Tappan Zee Friday, the new section did not open Saturday because of a "potentially dangerous situation" involving a section of the old bridge.

Basile said video indicated that Williams had been carrying a large knife and he still had the knife when detective James Olsen chased Williams behind the school building into a fenced-in area. Basile said Williams tripped, dropped the knife, then "rearmed himself and became an imminent danger" towards the detective.
That's when Basile said Olsen feared for his safety and the detective fired two shots, hitting Williams once in a spot Basile described as the left rear shoulder. The incident appears in the background of a video and it doesn't show the detective's exact position at the time of the shooting.
The detective wasn't outfitted with a body camera , nor did he have a taser. In this case, the use of force, per our internal investigation, was necessary.

After the media presentation Thursday, she spoke with reporters outside police headquarters and said she hasn't come to a conclusion for herself about the shooting.
I'm sure they did everything they could with the information that they had," Green said, noting that police didn't have access to Williams or his medical report. His attorney recommended he not speak with police because he's facing charges.
