Statue of Liberty reopens
New York (WSYR-TV) - The Statue of Liberty is open again after being closed because of the government shutdown.
New York State is paying for the day-to-day operations until the federal government is back up and running.
The daily price tag to keep the statue and park open is $61,000.
For now, that money will come from the state;s tourism budget.
Right now, the agreement only covers the park until Friday.
