In the Planet of the Apes how the hell did the statue of liberty get on a beach?

And why is it the only thing left over of Humanity? How did the Statue get from an Island in Manhattan Harbour to a beach.

    Manhattan Harbour had silted up that badly.

    As I remember the movie closing screen set with the Statue of Liberty  up to her cheeks in sand   was one of Hollywood's poorer fabrications.  It did however have a great mental impact to me... and obviously:  additionally you!

    With the passage of vast amounts of time and implied nuclear war, the coastlines are no longer where they were when the astronauts left Earth.

    The result of the catastrophic nuclear war that took place. And when they landed back on Earth it was the year 3978, who knows, two thousand years from now (the year 4020) it could really look like that.

    Remember that the astronauts travelled into the future, not to a distant planet as they originally thought.  Near the beginning of the film there is a shot of the evening sky and that would suggest that something had happened to cause this.  Then in another part of the film the apes refer to the badlands and again that suggests something had happened.  Then go to the scene in the cave when the doctor talks about the doll and recites The Law.  The final scene of the film would indicate that some kind of nuclear war had taken place.
