I have been checking regularly since they announced they will reopen on October 28. Statue Cruises has crown access tickets on sale now: http://statuecruises.com/choose_tickets.aspx. Appears they are closed Mon - Wed for now in terms of crown access so I have purchased crown tickets for my family on a Sunday, the morning after we arrive (barring unforeseen December blizzards!), rather than the Wednesday I was planning on for our day trip to Lady Liberty (time to re-tool the trip itinerary!).
