Statue of Liberty reopen

 

The Statue of Liberty reopened on Monday (January 22) as the U.S. government shutdown extended into the work week.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he would use state funds to keep the landmark monument in operation. Cuomo said the site generates tourism revenue, adding that the monument serves as a welcoming beacon to immigrants arriving in the United States.

On the way to the see the statue, Angel Thalhofer from Washington State said she was happy it remained open.

“That would have really sucked to come all the way to the east coast and not have been able to go to the Statue of Liberty. I might not ever get to come on the east coast again.”

Dozens of other national parks and monuments were expected to remain partially or entirely closed after Congress failed to agree on a spending plan to keep the government running past a Friday (January 19) midnight deadline.
