What an amazing experience to be able to view all different camera angles of this great statue. I love the view of NYC harbor both during the day and at night. In the lower left hand corner, you'll see little controls that enable you to zoom in or out and change to a panoramic view! TOTALLY AWESOME!!

Lady Liberty is 125 years old! Her birthday was celebrated by bringing the great lady into the high tech era. There are webcams on her torch that let viewers gaze out at New York Harbor and read the tablet in her hands or see visitors on the grounds of the island below in real time.

The five cameras, that are installed on her torch, are on 24 hours, seven days a week,  and were donated to the National Park Service by EarthCam, a New Jersey company that manages webcams around the world.
Friday's ceremony was marked by a water flotilla, actress Sigourney Weaver reading Lazarus' poem and a naturalization ceremony for 125 candidates for citizenship representing more than 40 countries. The live Earth Cam is on now! Watch from across the harbor or from her cams! Huge military ships and tankers! Cruise ships! The NYC traffic in the harbor is amazing both day and night!


  1. Ruth thanks for sharing but I cab't find any links to the cameras.

  2. Hi! Did you try clicking on the words below the picture of the Statue? I didn't learn how to make a picture with a URL that goes directly to the site until today. Sorry about that. Let me know if clicking on the words below the picture work, ok?
