NEW YORK STATE -- Tourists will again be able to visit the Statue of Liberty starting Sunday.
This, after New York State agreed to shoulder the costs of running the site during the government shutdown.
Ferry trips to Liberty Island National park from Manhattan's Battery Park will resume at 9 in the morning - with tickets on sale from 8:30. If you have tickets for Liberty Island from days during this shutdown, they will be honored, but space is limited inside the monument and at the crown.
However, it's still unclear if service from the New Jersey side of the Hudson River will resume. The Governor's office says all this will cost the state just over 61-thousand-dollars a day.
