There are more checks at the statue.The latter include a device that blows air 
through clothing and tests for evidence of explosive particles. The State of 
Liberty is among the first sites with the technology.On September 11, 2001, the 
second of two hijacked jetliners skimmed low over the statue just seconds 
before crashing into the World Trade Center's south tower, 11/2 miles away. The 
12 acres of Liberty Island were closed to the public for two months after the 
attacks.Most of the 152-foot copper figure was sealed off to visitors and will 
remain so.But visitors may choose between two tours: a walk around the 
promenade atop the star-shaped fort on which the statue stands or an elevator 
ride inside the pedestal to the calf level of the figure, about 10 stories 
high, to gaze upward through a glass partition at the steel girders and 
armatures holding it together and view the harbor panorama from a narrow 
observation deck.Also reopened is a museum inside the base that details the 
history of the Statue of Liberty, including such artifacts as the original 
lit-from-within torch, which was replaced during a 1986 renovation with a 
gilded version lit from outside.Parkinson said the government "has not 
foreclosed" the idea of eventually reopening the statue's body so visitors 
could once again climb to the crown, but safety factors make that unlikely.
