ELLIS ISLAND - Lady Liberty is getting a high-tech uplift for her 125th birthday.

Internet-connected cameras installed on her torch will let viewers gaze out at New York Harbor or see visitors on the grounds below. The cameras were donated by Hackensack-based EarthCam.

The "lighting" of the so-called torch cams is one of many events planned for Friday's ceremony commemorating the Statue of Liberty's dedication on Oct 28, 1886.

The day also will be marked by a naturalization ceremony, water flotilla and a spectacular 12-minute Macy's Fireworks display choreographed to patriotic music.
