Happy Birthday~ Statue of Liberty-125 years!(and~ she gets a really cool present)

The Statue of Liberty~ our country's most famous landmarks~ is getting a birthday present to celebrate her 125 birthday. Webcams~ five of them~ have been installed on her torch. Since 1916~ the torch area of the statue has been closed to the public. With the web cams~ Internet viewers will be able to once again~ see the birds-eye view of the harbor and read the tablet she is holding in her hands. The cameras go"live" on her birthday~ October 28.2011. Check here to see the webcam when posted:!/statuelibrtynps
