Statue of Liberty?

WOW! This one totally stumped me, I would have guessed Status of Liberty (but knew it wasn’t correct)! So, how did you know, Andy?

A few years ago, on the Open House NY weekend, I was able to get entry to the Highbridge tower so I was pretty sure at a glance. Of course, my acrophobia made the climb on the rickety stairs up to the top pretty nervewracking and I really wasn’t able to enjoy the view any of the rest of the experience. At least it all stuck in my memory enough to recall what it looked like.

It wouldn’t have been the statue of liberty because there wouldn’t be graffiti inside it.
In the hull of the great space ark, en route to the observation deck. right?
Is that graffiti on the walls in the background?
I have no idea, but I want to know the answer!
