The Statue of Liberty has been evacuated because of a smoke condition. A FDNY spokesman told Reuters, "We have a smoke condition around the elevator and the statue's been evacuated and we are on scene." No one appears to be injured. The statue's crown only reopened last year—it is rather stunning—after being closed for many years. It was closed partly due to post-9/11 terrorism concerns, but one official also said the narrow staircase "violates every fire code in the city of New York and the state of New York and the state of New Jersey."
