The Statue of Liberty turns 125 Friday, and the iconic structure is being celebrated with a high-tech facelift.

Internet-connected cameras have been installed around the torch to offer a different view of New York City.

The city will be hosting festivities all day to commemorate the Statue of Liberty's dedication on Oct 28, 1886.

The ceremony includes the swearing in of 125 new citizens, a poem reading by Sigourney Weaver and 12-minute Macy's Fireworks display choreographed to patriotic music.
