STATUE OF LIBERTY

The Statue of Liberty, officially titled Liberty Enlightening the World was presented to the United States by "the people of France" in 1886. Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans traveling by ship. The statue is of a robed woman holding a torch, and is made of a sheeting of pure copper, hung on a framework of steel (originally puddled iron) with the exception of the flame of the torch, which is coated in gold leaf (originally made of copper and later altered to hold glass panes).

 

The Empire State Building is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York.

Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City and New York State.
