The Statue of Liberty Turns 125 Years Old

Believe it or not, I have lived in New York City for over six years now, but I have never been to the Liberty Island, or even Ellis Island, to see the Statue of Liberty.

Today Lady Liberty turns 125 years old (she doesn't look a day over 95!) and to celebrate, please fill your brain with some interesting factoids about the Statue of Liberty, her origins and what's coming up for her in the years to come.

I mean, I'm still not going to push through tourists to see her in person, but I'll settle from the far-off views of her from lower Manhattan.

Lots of more cool facts and info from Yahoo!'s creative video series Who Knew?
