Tourists take photos of the Statue of Liberty while riding a tour boat in New York Harbor, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. The statue is administered by the National Park Service and is closed as a result of the government shutdown. President Barack Obama laid the blame for the government's partial shutdown at the feet of House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday, escalating a confrontation that is running the risk of a potentially damaging clash over the nation's borrowing authority.
