After being shuttered for over eight years following the events of 9/11, the Statue of Liberty will reopen its crown to the public on July 4, 2009. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, June 13, at 10 a.m. EST. Purchase them online at or by calling 877-523-9849. You'll have to act quickly, though, as only 240 people per day will be allowed up to Lady Liberty's crown in groups of ten, no more than three times an hour.

Crown tickets are a mere $3 on top of the reserved ferry tickets to 12-acre Statue of Liberty National Monument, which cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $5 for children ages 4 to 12. Up to four tickets can be reserved per customer once during any six-month period and are eligible for visits up to one year in advance. Note that free "monument access" passes are also available to enter the monument and ascend the lower pedestal but not the crown; these passes are issued by the ferry operators and will be printed on your ferry ticket. --Erin Pak
