It is hard to believe that after my many years of schooling (secondary and post) the following facts about the Statue of Liberty were never taught.

I BURGLE BOOKS ON PARK AVENUE/I MAKE A BIG HAUL IN A FANCY BROWNSTONE/Part Two Summer of '61. There are no cell phones, computers, emails, Facebooks, Twitters. But everybody knows where the party is. You don't have to make plans. A fifteen cent subway ride takes you to Washington Square Park...
