Our tour guide was Owen and he was the absolute man. He knew everything there was to know about this tour he kept it interesting and had a good balance of teaching some things and enjoying yourself. We went while it rained a little which...More
Wandering around NYC we made it to the south portion and Battery Park and noticed Castle Clintion National Monument. It was free to look around so my teenaged son and I did. It is open 7 days a week 7:45 am until 5:00 pm.

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
