The Statue of Liberty’s original torch has been moved from the base of the statue to its new home in a museum that will open next year.
The torch was replaced with a replica in the 1980s.
Visitors watched on Thursday as the base and the flame of the 3,600-pound torch were trucked slowly and carefully to the museum construction site about 100 yards from the statue.
