Can anyone argue that the Lady who guards over the New York Harbor is not one of, if not the most iconic symbol of America and what this country has stood for since it’s creation so many decades ago? The Statue of Liberty standing at just over 151 feet in height is the sight of choice for tens of millions of New York City tourists every year. Heck, we ourselves are native New Yorkers and we’ve visited her numerous times and with each visit we’ve stood at the base in awe and wonder. We even got to climb to the crown one year and what a hike it was! But a hike that was worth every grueling step upwards. To have reach the top of this sculpture and glance out onto the harbor at the passing water craft of all sorts and the towers of Lower Manhattan was an experience like no other to be found within our great city.
Constructed in France and gifted to America in the latter part of the 19th Century the lady was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
Associated with this grand landmark is the New Colussus written by Emma Lazarus. Which goes as follows:
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
