The Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor on Liberty Island is one very famous symbol of American freedom. It`s one of the largest statues in the world. The idea for the statue came from the French architect Frederic Bartholdi. He and his country wanted to give a present to the Americans _because_ they loved the United States.
_First____ the French people collected about $ 400,000 for the construction of the statue. _After___, the statue was designed, _then____ it was built. The Statue of Liberty was given to the people of the United States on July 4 1884, __but____ it was not completed until 1886.
Today boats take visitors from Manhattan to Liberty Island in 15 minutes. Either __so ____ taking the elevator __or___ climbing 331 steps to the crown, visitors have a beautiful view of New York Harbor. The statue is about 46 meters high, _and__ its nose is about 1 meter long!

Bin mir unsicher, ob ich die fehlenden Wörter in den Text richtig ergänzt habe.
