The Statue of Liberty is ready to face the masses, reports CNN's Pamela Brown.
Back in October 2012, Hurricane Sandy forced Lady Liberty's closing just a day after her 126 year anniversary. While the status itself was unharmed, storm surge socked Liberty Island. Bricks were ripped up, docks destroyed and garbage everywhere.
CNN got rare access for the reopening, all the way to her crown, and up 377 steps. Check it out!

Imagine driving and getting trapped inside a sinkhole.
That terrifying scenario was all too real for one woman in Toledo.
Sixty-year-old Pamela Knox and her car were swallowed by a sinkhole suddenly opening up in the middle of a busy street.
Police and fire crews had to use a crane and a ladder to rescue her. It took four hours.
“Slowly she was able to work her way out, to safety,” CNN’s Zain Asher reports. “Knox was surprisingly not hurt in the accident, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.”
Millions will watch live this Sunday when The Discovery Channel broadcasts Nik Wallenda as he walks on a two-inch thick wire at 8 p.m. ET. They will use a 10-second delay, according to a Discovery Channel spokesman.
Wallenda holds seven high wire world records including the biggest walk across a waterfall when he crossed Niagara Falls on TV last year.
But this time there won't be a safety harness.
Kate caught up with up him to watch him train, and ended up trying it out for herself. "I didn't tell my husband about it until I got home," she says.
