Lady Liberty's not letting a little storm keep her down (anymore): yesterday, the Statue of Liberty's torch and crown were lit up for the first time since Sandy hit the city.

Though damage from the storm has forced the Statue to close to the public indefinitely, the National Park Service will be keeping her lit using generators and other equipment. The equipment has been donated by two private companies, Natoli Construction and Musco Lighting, and park officials plan to maintain the statue's illumination until power can be restored to Liberty Island.

Just prior to Sandy, the Statue had been closed for a year's worth of renovations. The NPS has been trying to repair what they say is extensive storm damage, but for now, sadly, we'll only be able to admire the Lady from afar.
