(Newser) – The Statue of Liberty is scheduled to reopen by July 4, about eight months after it was closed because of Superstorm Sandy. The statue in New York City's harbor was spared damage from the October storm, but Liberty Island, where the statue sits, was badly damaged. Sandy came one day after the Statue of Liberty's 126th birthday and the reopening of its crown after a yearlong, $30 million upgrade.
