The Statue of Liberty is one of the most instantly recognizable symbols of America. 
But, how did Lady Liberty find her home in the waters of New York Bay? 
It’s a story of hopes and dreams and failures and successes, and one that features a number of significant people in history. 
A new book takes a deep dive into the history of the Statue of Liberty. It’s called Lady Liberty: An Illustrated History of America’s Most Storied Woman. The book includes essays by Joan Marans Dim and paintings by Antonio Masi. Joan and Antonio are our guests on this week's Cityscape.
