The new Interior secretary climbs to the Statue of Liberty’s crown Friday– but doesn’t commit to reopening the statue.

“It is tight. It is cramped. It is hot. It probably isn’t completely safe to have everyone go up, in any numbers, at any time.”

The iconic crown has been closed since 9/11. Local political leaders want it re-opened.
