The Statue of Liberty is shown as it arrives in New York. France’s gift to America
crossed the Atlantic dismantled in crates aboard the French steamer Isère (center), which nearly sank in a storm during the voyage. Two hundred thousand people
lined the docks and hundreds of boats put to sea to welcome the Isère. It took a
year to completely assemble the statue on Bedloe’s Island, now called Liberty
Island.

was a
welcoming sight to many immigrants arriving from abroad.
