Today is the 130th Birthday of a very special resident of New York City. Yes my friends, it is the 130th for the amazing Statue Of Liberty who has welcomed millions of visitors to our metropolis and the surrounding regions.
The statue was a gift from France way back when and you can learn all of the finer details on the official Wikipedia entry that I have pasted at the close of the birthday wish. The photo that you see above was taken by me with the Samsung point and shoot while attending an event called Blogger Bash. The event came with a short harbor cruise and we passed by the statue so everyone was snapping away. I’ve not been to the actual Liberty Island in many years so thinking that I need to do that sort of excursion once more. Who’s up for some tourism? I love exploring my city and sharing the fun right here on the Chronicles so let’s get some plans in gear. See you next time.
Huzzah, kudos and congratulations to The Statue Of Liberty who today is one-hundred twenty five years of age. Yep, it was that long ago when the massive statue was dedicated to the United States from France and it has been both inspiring and a constant point of interest in the tourists minds. I have to admit that I kind of like to see it up close myself. The photo below is by no means the real deal statue but instead appears to be a giant desk decoration that I happened upon while wandering our fair Metropolis. Since I did not have any recent photos of the statue or scans of older photography, I opted to snap this one quick to be able to properly offer up some well wishes.
I realize that 125 years is a great milestone and that means some special events and speeches will be par for the course for the great statue. It makes me all the more excited for when she hits 150 years. Don’t worry, as before that day comes I will try to get some more recent images for blogging purposes and for your enjoyment. Happy Birthday once again Lady Liberty.
