Happy Birthday Statue of Liberty

Today the Statue of Liberty is 125 years old. It dedicated on October 28, 1886, as a gift from the people of France. Although I find that people often have an anti-French point of view (for no apparent reason), one should remember that it was France who helped us win the American Revolution, so we still probably kinda owe them. The Statue is not really Yankee, but that's all perspective as we know.

In celebration of the Statue's birthday five webcams have been installed on the torch, an area which has been closed to the public since 1916. These pics can be seen at:
