It  was designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, created by Bartholdi,  Gustave EiffelRichard Morris Hunt. It came in 350 pieces and wouldn’t be erected for 6 months. It is quite the site. It is must see on any trip to the Big Apple. Such an amazing structure for the immigrants to gaze at on their way to Elise Island.
