Statue of Liberty and the MOMA

Fragilis - h2g2 Cured My Tabular Obsession

The Statue of Liberty is only partially accessible at this time.

Tourists can visit the pedestal, but the actual statue and crown is off limits due to fire, safety, and terrorism concerns in the wake of 9/11. I understand general access will not be made available until a major construction overhaul is achieved to allow for some other means of escape besides the narrow original 16-story staircase.

The MOMA, the Museum of Modern Art, is another must-see museum.

While the Met has a section for modern art, it just can't compare to the shockingly good collection in the MOMA. Add to this also the rapidly rotating displays for new artists and the brand new renovation by an artful Japanese architect, and I can't see wanting to miss it.

Also, Orlando is home to Disney World, not Disney Land. Disneyland is in California.
