On this day in 1885 the Statue of Liberty arrived in the New York Harbor, a gift from France to commemorate the new countries centennial and the friendship with their allies across the sea.
It was designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, created by Bartholdi, Gustave Eiffel, Richard 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.
