The Statue of Liberty has been closed for more than three months because of damage from Superstorm Sandy. Now, city officials want answers.

On Monday, Sen. Charles Schumer held a news conference urging the Department of the Interior to release a timeline of when repairs will be made to the statue.

Schumer says the closure of the statue has not only left hundreds of people out of work but is hurting tourism as well.
