Snapshots of Lutetia – Petite Lady Liberty

Petite Lady Liberty

For a long time, coming to New York meant being welcomed by the Statue of Liberty, until most people decided to come by airplane instead of by boat. All around the world, this statue signifies the United States of America, even if we all know that it actually is French. Yes, Lady Liberty was built in Paris, as a present to the United States. That is why, on the southern tip of the Ile des Cygnes, a smaller copy welcomes all that come by water to Paris.
