The 4th of July would be a good time to visit the Statue of Liberty, seen here for free around 8 PM July 3rd from Liberty State Park in New Jersey. The Green Lady's torch still "burns".
NOTE: Crazy things happen in a free country. Due to the New Jersey government SHUTTING ITSELF DOWN, many parks and other government-run facilities in New Jersey will close July 5th. So, you better hurry on down to the banks of the mighty Hudson River soon, if you want to enjoy this free view.
