Good place to stop when in Battery Park when going to Statue of Liberty. Passport stamp in gift shop and restrooms. Interesting old structure and an old cannon. Good for a quick look when in the area.

Our boys like to collect badges from the Junior Ranger program implemented by the National Park Service. We were in New York City, but did not want to pay and wait to go all the way to the Statue of Liberty. We asked the park...More

It is a bit hard to see the interesting history of this place amidst all the tickets' booths. Still, if you are interested it is worth the effort to see the place (free entrance) and read about it's history

Most people will visit this place on their way to buy tickets for Ellis Island, etc. But it's worth pausing for a bit to read about the history of the site. For one thing, it's interesting to note that it was basically an island, and...More

This is a national park - get your passport stamp here! Great photo ops and this is where you get your tickets for the ferry ride and different things there. Bookstore - get your stamp here.

I thought this had some interesting things to see. I especially enjoyed the "time lapse" display of how the castle has changed. But, there is a lot to see elsewhere in the city, so I wouldn't plan on this taking too long.

This old castle was an immigration centre ages ago and of historical significance. It’s main significance now is that it’s the place to buy ferry tickets to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Worth a very quick look.

This national park is located next to the line to get to the Statue of Liberty. It’s worth wandering through but there were a lot of roped off areas. If it’s hot there is a good amount of shade. Kids will find it boring most...More

20-30 min tops. If you stop and read everything. It’s very small.

We took Via there (similar to Lyft or Uber but less expensive). However the Bowling Green Metro stop is close by and several bus stops are close by also. Depends on where you are coming from.
