The Statue of Liberty is reopening July 4 after Superstorm Sandy flooded the island where it stands.
 
The statue has been closed since Sandy struck the region on Oct. 29 and damaged much of Liberty Island's infrastructure. The statue itself is on higher ground and was not damaged.
 
Ferry tickets to visit the island on July 4 or later may be purchased online or by phone. Tickets to the statue's crown are only available by reservation.
 
A spokeswoman for the National Park Service says the nearby Ellis Island Immigration Museum will be partially open on July 4.

She says officials have not determined how much of Ellis Island can be open to visitors.
 
Sandy brought 8 feet of water to Liberty Island, destroying boilers and electrical systems.
