Today we were out and looked at the Statue of Liberty. We took a taxi to Liberty Island from the hotel. We went out into the street and waved at a taxi, stopped and he asked where we wanted to go. We said we were going to Liberty Island. We jumped in to the car and then he started to drive. It would take 15 minutes to go and it is 5.49 miles to the place. When we arrived so I asked what it would cost and the driver said it cost $18.30, so I paid and then we went out and photographed the statue.

The Statue of Liberty is one of New York's and America's characteristics and millions of tourists visit it.
The Statue of Liberty was inaugurated October 28 1886, and was a gift to the U.S. from "the French people", as a symbol to commemorate the centenary of American independence. Through the years, the statue also come to symbolize freedom and democracy.
The statue was designed by sculptor Frederic Bartholdi and is made of copper sheet over an iron frame. The body was designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel, he designed the Eiffel Tower.
The statue measures 46 meters and is located on a 47 meter high pedestal of hewn stone. From the ground to the torch becomes the more than 93 meters. The nose is 146 centimeters long.

We eat lunch at Angelo's pizza and then we went to 57th St, and shop at Victoria's Secret, 34 E. 57th St, and traded underwear, makeup, perfumes and clothing. After we had shop at Victoria's Secret so we went to Burberry's, 9 E. 57th St, and checked the handbags, but we found no that were in our taste, so we went on to Prada, 45 E. 57th St, and I found a nice bag. But not Matilda, she found a bag on Chanel, 15 E. 57th St. Which was also nice.
We wanted to buy Uggs from Australia, they're genuine Uggs. So we looked up on the phone where we could find the store and then store lay in the corner of 58th St, and with Madison Ave. We went and bought a pair of tan and a pair of dark brown. When we thought we had dealt mostly we would in New York so we went back to the hotel.
