Did you know that during the 1984-1986 restoration the Statue of Liberty had a nose job? ⠀
Because riveted copper is not waterproof, water would get into the statue and pool up in certain locations. One in particular, her nose. The water deteriorated her nose and the copper had to be replaced. ⠀

In 1920, a spooky stowaway named Bela Lugosi snuck into the United States by hiding on a ship. ⠀
⠀
However, he wanted to make it big in Hollywood, so he turned himself in for inspection at Ellis Island. ⠀
⠀
The court decided to allow him entry regardless, once he paid his head tax of course! ⠀
⠀
And good thing, too, because he later became famous for portraying Count Dracula!⠀
