Live web-cams from the Statue of Liberty
On October 28th, 2011, as a part of the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, five live web-cams were installed in Ms. Liberty’s torch, in her crown, and at the harbor. There’s also a Panorama of the NJ and NY skylines, Ellis Island, and the New York-New Jersey Harbor.
At 8:45 a.m. there was a Naturalization Ceremony, which honored the millions of U.S. immigrants who were first welcomed to America by Lady Liberty.
Click on any of the five pictures and enjoy a live streaming video… day or night.
There’s live audio too, so you can hear the whoosh of aircraft overhead and the honk of boat horns as YOU watch the ships steam across the bay. Click on this link to look and listen:
