FILE - This May 20, 2009 file photo shows the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty is reopening July 4, 2013, after Liberty Island flooded during Superstorm Sandy, and tickets for the ferry ride to the island are now on sale. The statue has been closed since Sandy struck the region on Oct. 29 and damaged much of the island's infrastructure. The statue itself is on higher ground and was not damaged.(AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)
