"Liberty Enlightening the World" (Liberty Enlightening the World), known as the Statue of Liberty (Statue of Liberty in English, Statue de la Liberté in French), is one of the most famous monuments in New York State States and worldwide. It is located on Liberty Island south of the island of Manhattan, near the mouth of the Hudson River near Ellis Island. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French to the U.S. in 1886 to commemorate the centennial of the Declaration of Independence of the United States and as a sign of friendship between the two nations. It was inaugurated on October 28, 1886 in the presence of U.S. President at the time, Grover Cleveland. The statue is the work of French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and the inner structure was designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel.2 French architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, was responsible for the choice of copper used for the construction of the statue. On October 15, 1924, the statue was declared a national monument in the United States and October 15, 1965 Ellis Island was added. Since 1984 is considered World Heritage by the Unesco.2 The Statue of Liberty, besides being an important monument in the city of New York, became a symbol in the U.S. and represents a more general level, the freedom and emancipation from oppression. Since opening in 1886, the statue was the first vision that European immigrants had to reach the United States after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. In architectural terms, the statue recalls the famous Colossus of Rhodes, one of the "seven wonders of the world." She was nominated for the "new world wonders," where was a finalist. The name assigned by UNESCO is "National Monument Statue of Liberty." Since June 10, 1933 is responsible for administration of National Parks Service of the United States. The French jurist and politician, author of Paris en Amerique, Edward Laboulaye, had the idea that France offered a gift to the United States as a gift to commemorate the centenary of American independence, as a reminder of the long friendship between both countries and to ensure the Franco-American. In a conversation with Laboulaye, his friend the young Alsatian sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi had said:
