The Statue of Liberty Tips (20)

Mini Statue of Liberty

Just a short walk down from the Eiffel Tower, there is a mini Statue of Liberty. It was a gift from America to France and has not only our Independence date, but France's Independence date on the tablet, as well. It's on the River Seine, and you can go right out to it, if you walk down the bridge and out to the tip of the little land thing it's on.

Enfants de la Liberte

As most Americans and Frenchmen know, the Statue of Liberty gracing New York Harbor was a gift from French artisans and their government in 1886. During the restoration for its centennial, French artisans grouped with Americans to refurbish and touch up Lady Liberty. In Paris on the Allee des Cygnes (the Isle of Swans) stands a miniature replica of Lady Liberty, though the local neighborhoods are nothing to marvel. Of monuments in this area, the Statue of Liberty is the most conspicuous, but the Eiffel Tower is the most visited several blocks away to the north.

The Statue of Liberty in Paris. This is not noted in a lot of travel books and is easily missed. The original Statue of Liberty which is much smaller in size to the one in New York rests on a small island in the Seine.
It's near the "Pont de Grenelle" and the closest metro station is "Bir Hakeim" . Thanks to VT member Pascal known as Lavep for the location information.

This mini Statue of Liberty is tucked away in a forgotten part of town in the middle of the Seine with a not-very-attractive bridge as a back-drop. We couldn't resist taking a peak, but some might not find it very interesting.

Many people believe that the Statue of Liberty in New York City is unique and are surprised to see the one in Paris along the Seine River. In fact, the New York City statue was a gift of friendship from the French to the Americans.

The Statue of Liberty of Auguste Bartholdi. Located Ile aux Cygnes. I guess still a lot of people will be surprised to see it in Paris, why not New York? :-) Worth going and have a look!
