Statue of Liberty closed indefinitely due to storm damage
If you're planning a trip to New York that includes Ellis Island or the Statue of Liberty, you may want to hold off on the trip. The National Park Service took journalists on a tour of Liberty Island Friday and pointed out extensive damage done by Superstorm Sandy. Most of the island was under water, some parts as much as much as 8 feet deep. The statue itself wasn't damaged -- nor were artifacts on neighboring Ellis Island -- but clean-up of the grounds is going to require so much work that the National Park Service won't estimate when the sites will reopen.
