Lady Liberty's crown--climb to the top with a reservation

June 10, 2009, 7:04 am

Today visitors to the Statue of Liberty can't venture beyond the top of the statue's pedestal. Beginning July 4, 2009, a lucky few (30 per hour) will be able to climb to her crown.

On May 8, 2009, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced that beginning this July 4, the American public will once again be able to visit the crown of the Statue of Liberty, which was closed after the 9/11 attacks for safety and security reasons. Beginning at 10 a.m. (EST) on June 13, 2009, crown reservations may be made through the park’s ferry concessioner, Statue Cruises, or by calling 877- LADY-TIX (877-523-9849).
