Super shot. That's got to be my favorite monument in the whole world! It was in all the history books I used while teaching American history!

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, .....

There were a great many people who found a better life on those newly discovered shores.

This is wonderful! If I had run across it, I might have saved it for May 1 and "revolution."

I find this structure so compelling. And I love that you caught that cross in the lower right corner of the photo.

Looking at the person in black, I realised that this monument is HUGE.
Also very very pretty.
