The Statue of Liberty – New York City – U.S.A
Before an attack on the Statue of Liberty in 1916, visitors could travel not only to the crown but to the torch as well. On July 30, 1916, during World War I a large explosion by German spies badly damaged the statue’s arm and torch. The explosion was so big that the entirety of the Ellis Island had to be evacuated. The damage incurred wasn’t fully repaired until 1984. A replica of the torch was placed in Lady Liberty’s hand and the original can be seen in the lobby of the monument.
