Discovering New York, you get to one of the most famous places: The Statue of Liberty. The colossal Statue of Liberty welcomes all travellers to American shores and it is placed in the southern side of Manhattan in New York Harbour. The statue was dedicated in 1886. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Liberty Island is maintained by the National Park Service and can be reached by ferry.
