Total Eclipse of the Sun!
On Monday August 21, 2017, the biggest and best solar eclipse in American history is coming soon to a sky near you. On average, a total eclipse is visible from any one spot on Earth about once every 375 years. That puts fewer than 1 in 1,000 people has ever seen a total eclipse of the sun. The average speed of the moon's shadow as it races from the West Coast to the East is 1,700 mph!
Will Miss Liberty see the eclipse? She will be shaded when 72% of the sun is blocked but she's 571 miles NE of Path of Totality. Enjoy the moment safely if you are anywhere in North America. ... See MoreSee Less

After visiting Lady Liberty, we urge you to stroll up to Federal Hall National Memorial and see A Living Thing: Flag Exchange.

The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. is with Statue of Liberty National Monument.
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most admired figures in the world, no question. But for such a popular Lady, she’s had a variety of caretakers. The U.S. Lighthouse Board was responsible for her until 1901. Next came the War Department, which tended to her until 1933. That’s when Lady Liberty was transferred to the National Park Service, which continues to look after the Statue today. #NPS ... See MoreSee Less
