Historic Sites: These two sights represent freedom for millions of people, and the Statue of Liberty, a 450,000 pound gift from the people of France, is a must-see for anyone visiting the Big Apple. It used to have the lengthier title "The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World." The torch that she is holding stands for that enlightenment and inscribed on her tablet is the date of the American Declaration of Independence.
