We visited this park after our trip to the 911 memorial. It is on the southwest corner of the island, and is a serene peace of land in what otherwise can be an extremely bustling city. If you're downtown and looking for somewhere to relax,...More

This park is great for taking in the view and also for the Tom Otterness sculptures, they're such fun. Plenty of benches to sit and watch the sunset over Jersey City and the Statue of Liberty. Lots of green space too for picnics and games...More

This is the park along the Hudson almost at the tip of Manhattan. Pretty side streets. Many benches to sit and look across the Hudson at the Jersey coast,The Statue of Liberty, or just the passing boats. Good idea for a warm night.warm night .

Financial District
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
