Visitors to the Statue of Liberty disembark onto Liberty Island from the first ferry to leave Manhattan on Thursday in New York. The Statue of Liberty reopened on the Fourth of July months after Superstorm Sandy swamped its little island in New York Harbor as Americans across the country marked the holiday with fireworks and barbecues.
