Lady Liberty at Dusk

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jul• 01•11

Spent an evening on Liberty Island last night as part of Statue Cruise’s new summer night tours (my company does work for them.)  I haven’t been on Liberty Island in more than 40 years, and the experience was even more memorable this time than the first time I saw the statue up close.   The number of people allowed on the island at night is limited and our group had free rein to explore. My wife and I spent the evening chasing our four-year-old daughter, but also marveling close-up at this grand international landmark. At dusk, Lady Liberty is breathtaking.  The camera-phone photo above does not begin to do her justice at that hour of the day.

There are eight more summer night tour dates available this year.  I would highly recommend taking one if you are in the New York area.
