Statue of Liberty Will Be Illuminated For the First Time Since Superstorm Sandy.
Information provided by Musco Press Release:
Friday the Statue of Liberty will once again shine through the darkness of New York Harbor, providing a bright beacon of hope to storm ravaged residents of New York and New Jersey as the recovery from the massive damages inflicted by Hurricane Sandy continues.
Thanks to a generous donation of equipment and services by Musco Lighting, the Statue will be re-lit through temporary measures that will remain in place until a full assessment of the extent of the damage to the lighting system is complete and a permanent fix implemented.
“For 125 years the Statue of Liberty has been one of the world’s most enduring symbols of our nation and this great city,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “While we work to do everything necessary to re-open the Statue and every other national park damaged by the hurricane, we are grateful to Musco and the National Park Foundation for turning the lights on Lady Liberty, another step forward in the recovery of this region.”
