The Statue of Liberty

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Situated in New York Harbour, the Statue of Liberty has become the proud symbol of the United States of America.The statue of the Goddess of Freedom carries the light of the spirit of enlightenment to the Free World.

Alexander Gustave Eiffel, whose tower later made him famous, built the statues ingenious iron frame construction supported by a central shaft.Around this framework a 2.4 millimeter thick copper coating was attached to the statue and it is mainly due to Eiffels frame that the monument has withstood the bays savage winter storms.

On the 28th October 1886, North Americas most important statue was inaugurated by President Grover Cleveland.The statue was the design of a young sculptor, Bartholdi, who had eagerly accepted the work due to the fact that the commission of his design of a large female statue for a lighthouse on the Suez Canal had not reached fruition.

At first, the statue received little love and affection.Indeed, New Yorkers used the statue’ s unveiling ceremony for a protest demonstration! Since then, however, it has most assuredly conquered the hearts of those who have seen it and it has become a symbol of freedom for the whole of America.

The Empire State Building

and here is the script :

One of the world’s most famous skyscrapers is easily recognized by its strong, slender ascent into the NY sky. Opened in 1931, this 1,450 feet icon is currently the ninth tallest building in the world. The landmark soars more than a quarter mile into the Manhattan atmosphere.

Observation decks are on the 86th and 102nd floors. The lower deck is probably the better spot for the best views. On clear days, enjoy an amazing 80-mile visibility.

In the lobby, special concerts and art exhibits are offered at various times throughout the year. Hour and rates vary so be sure to check for specific information.
