But, there was once another part of the statue visitors were permitted to tour, until a terror attack that occurred in 1916 known as “The Black Tom Explosion.” Black Tom was once an island in the New York Harbor located a short distance from the Statue of Liberty.
The statue, representing the Roman goddess of freedom, features one foot moving forward to symbolize progress and a broken chair at her feet.At am, a major explosion took place with residents being shaken from their beds by earthquake like vibrations that registered between 5.0 and 5.5 on the Richter Scale.The force was so powerful, that windows were blown out all over Manhattan and as far as 25 miles away. The outer wall of Jersey City’s City Hall was cracked and a large clock in the Journal Square neighborhood over a mile away was hit and damaged.The statue has welcomed millions of visitors over the years.When the statue reopens, visitors will once again be able to climb the long spiral staircase to the crown and take a peek out the windows high above the harbor for spectacular views of New York City and the busy waterway.
The statue reopened a year later on Sunday, October 28, 2012 – the day before Superstorm Sandy made a direct and devastating hit on the area.
