PATERSON - The same company that installed the Statue of Liberty's elevator 25 years ago is now installing three modern ones.

The company, Liberty Elevator Corporation, has been run by the same family for three generations. The original elevator is the largest hydraulic elevator of its kind in the U.S. Two New Jersey brothers will be replacing the elevator, which their late father installed.

The statue will close for a year for renovation. Crews start working on the new elevators in March and the project should be finished by next August.
