Are There More Statues of Liberty Than the One That Stands in New York Harbor?

 There are two Statues of Liberty in New York City. One stands i new York Harbor. A replica of "Lady Liberty" has graced the Brooklyn Museum's Sculpture Garden since 2002. She is thirty feet tall and was commissioned by William H. Flattau in 1900 to stand atop his building, the Liberty Warehouse in Manhattan. Other Statues of Liberty are found throughout the world, including two in Paris, France.
