A man with a megaphone announces the closure of the Statue of Liberty due to the U.S. government shutdown, to tourists at the ferry dock to the Statue of Liberty at Battery Park in New York October 1, 2013. The U.S. government began a partial shutdown on Tuesday for the first time in 17 years, potentially putting up to 1 million workers on unpaid leave, closing national parks and stalling medical research projects.
