Although, Liberty Island is not open to the public at night. ⠀ In late autumn and winter, the final departing ferries leave just after sunset. ⠀ This magical image is the combination of fog, clouds, a gentle mist and floodlights creating a "LIBERTY SIGNAL" in sky.⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark #afterdark #darkskies #nationalpark #nps102

The Statue of Liberty was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984. ⠀ The fact that she was constructed as both an artistic and engineering colossus; as well as her symbolism of freedom, liberty, and hope for a new future makes her an integral part of what it means to be a World Heritage Site. ⠀ ⠀ #Findyourpark #WorldheritageUSA #heritage4generations #worldheritageday

In 1898, Ludwig Bemelmans is born in the Tyrol, which was then in Austria-Hungary (now in Italy). ⠀ A rebellious child, when faced with the prospect of reform school he decided instead to immigrate to the United States in 1914. ⠀ Although he traveled second-class, Bemelmans was apparently detained on Ellis Island for lack of sufficient funds, but was ultimately admitted. ⠀ He worked as a waiter and eventually opened his own restaurant. ⠀ Bemelmans is most known, however, for writing and illustrating the beloved series of Madeline children’s books, beginning in 1939.

This morning before visitors arrived one of the final projects in the Ellis Island Collections Management Plan took place. ⠀ A helicopter transported the old HVAC equipment from the roof of the New Immigration Building and moved new equipment up. ⠀ Here we see the team and helicopter waiting to take off again from Island 2. ⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark #nps102 #nationalpark #HVAC #Helicopter #HurricaneSandyrecovery
The Weather is finally starting to warm up! ⠀ What better way to celebrate National Picnic Day then to pack a picnic lunch and visit Liberty and Ellis Islands! ⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark #nps102 #nationalpark #nationalpicnicday #ellisisland #libertyisland
On April 22, 1886, the granite pedestal for the statue is completed. ⠀ Workers tossed silver coins into the mortar before the last block of granite is lowered into place. ⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark #todayinhistory #Onthisday #nationalpark #nps102
