Wohoo, after almost two years of exploring every single corner of the city (even the darkest ones, you know...where people actually get shot) I finally made it to Liberty Island! When I came to New York in December 2010 I compiled a list of approximately 500 things I wanted to see and do in the Big Apple. Two years later there were only two things left on this list - a date with the Statue of Liberty and a performance by the New York City Ballet. A couple weeks ago I could at least check my visit to America's toughest border-control agent - on the job for 126 years now!
So here are some fabulous shots of the New York Harbor and Lady Liberty, not only a symbol of freedom to millions around the world but also a monument that stands for international friendship and hope!
