People stop and take pictures near a sign that explains why the Statue Of Liberty is closed due to a federal government shut-down on October 1, 2013 in New York City. The federal government's shutdown that began on Tuesday morning sent thousands of non-essential New York-based federal employees home and shuttered National Park facilities, including the Statue of Liberty.
