Schumer Calls on Washington to Set Timeline for Reopening Statue of Liberty
Superstorm Sandy severely damaged the Statue of Liberty national monument, which remains closed more than three months after the storm struck, with no estimated re-opening date.
U.S. Senator Charles Schumer on Tuesday called on the Department of Interior for a hard and fast timeline of when repairs will be made to the Statue of Liberty, including an estimated re-opening date.
Schumer said that the department done an impressive job repairing its properties across the region in the wake of the storm. A timeline for reopening the statue would help visitors plan trips to New York City and provide certainty to business dependent on it.
