Liberty Island Secondary Screening Facility

Statue Of Liberty National Monument » Liberty Island Secondary Screening Facility » Document List

Statue of Liberty National Monument is proposing to construct a secondary security screening facility on Liberty Island to replace the existing security screening tent. The new building(s) would house security screening operations for visitors with tickets to enter the Statue of Liberty's Pedestal and/or Crown, and provide lockers for personal items not allowed in the Statue (back-packs, large purses, diaper bags, strollers, etc.). The purpose of this project is to a provide storm resistant structure to protect expensive and sensitive security screening equipment, reduce operations and maintenance costs, allow for more efficient screening, promote better pedestrian circulation, and improve important views within the cultural landscape on Liberty Island.
