“I want one now!”

Agent J (Will Smith)

After causing panic throughout New York, triggering a massive fireworks display and rescuing the princess nicknamed the “Light of Zartha” (Rosario Dawson), the Men in Black must neuralyzer the entire population.

From which monument do they choose to carry out an operation of this magnitude? The Statue of Liberty.

The torch of the famous effigy hides a device to erase the memories made in Men in Black. With one click, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) takes care of the operation in a prodigious flash.

A device that impresses all the more the flashy Agent J (Will Smith), holder of the post and yet not aware of this incredible machine.

Statue of Liberty National Monument

One of the most famous monuments in the world, the work of Frenchman Auguste Bartholdi is not only the emblem of New York, but also and above all that of freedom, a value so dear to Americans. A powerful symbol, strong images: destruction, protective allegory, a happy ending, hope… The Statue of Liberty has inspired creators and its radiance does not seem to be about to fade away.

Offered by France in 1886 to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence, the Statue of Liberty has long been America’s first vision for millions of migrants.

Their boats sailed along Liberty Island, on which the 93-meter-high monument stands, before their passage to immigration on Ellis Island. Named Liberty Enlightening the World, the statue looks toward Europe and the date of the proclamation of independence, July 4, 1776, is engraved on its tablet.

The broken chains at its feet are a metaphor for freedom. To visit it, you must take the boat from Battery Park in southern Manhattan or Liberty State Park in New Jersey and it is recommended to buy tickets in advance.

The crossing costs $18.50. Add $18.50 to reach the pedestal where a museum is located and $21.50 to climb 354 steps to its crown.
