Lady Liberty celebrates her birthday with a bang. Fireworks light up the New York harbor as Americans celebrate the 125 anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. The monument was originally a gift from France and was dedicated in 1886 by president Grover Cleveland. The statue will be closed from Saturday for repairs, expected to take a year to complete.
