The Statue of Liberty stands on Liberty Island in the Hudson River near the New Jersey shore. She is facing Southeast so that she greets the incoming ships. The statue itself is 151 fett tall and stands on an 89 foot pedestal giving her an overall height of 305 feet. The pedestal base is a former US Army fort built in the early 1800's for the protection of New York City. The design of the fort is of an eleven point star. She was a gift of friendship from the people of France. The statue was constructed in France and once the United States completed the base and pedestal, she was taken apart and shipped in 350 pieces to New York City where she was erected in four months. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated by President Grover Cleveland on October 28, 1886.
