Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island

I just read that the crown of the Statue of Liberty will be opening again on July 4th. That is great news and a perfect day for it to reopen.

I grew up in New York City and I am one of those who have made it to the top. It was fantastic and I'm glad that now others will be able to share the experience.

It's been many years since I've been back to Ellis Island. I really should make another trip. All of my grandparents came through Ellis Island and I've done searches for them at EllisIsland.org. I was fortunate in being able to find the records of my paternal grandmother.

I really would like to visit again, now that it has become part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. This is part of my personal history.
