Lady liberty is opening her doors in celebration of America's Independence Day. The symbolic monument had been closed since Superstorm Sandy hit the statue's home on Liberty Island last October. Americans across the country are sharing their thoughts about the reopening online.
I'm at the Statue of Liberty, on the 4th of July, the first day it's been open since Hurricane Sandy. Best experience ever.
