It's hard in New York to find a place to relax away from Manhattan. Excluding Central Park the others are becoming smaller. This is one of them. It has the advantage to be on the shore of ferry and dwon town also. Relax with beautiful views. You can see also the Statue of Liberty from there.

We did not want to go to Ellis Island, so we were hoping we could get good views from this park. It was great. Could see the Statue of Liberty fine. Started here then headed our way back to Penn Central Station.

Not much to see here, but it is the departure point for Statue of Liberty tour. We wandered around the area a bit, but there wasn't much to see.

We had visited ground zero & after stopping for a coffee exited on to the riverside & found ourselves walking around battery park with its monuments to the brave fallen, a real bonus & a peaceful lovely walk.

Nice Park at the southern tip of Manhattan. You can stroll in a lovely ambiance. Romantic spot too if you isolate you and yours. A few colourful spheres add the spectacle. We visited in the afternoon and experienced a great view of harbour. The skyscrapers of the city were amazing. Worth visit more than once. Wall Street is walkable.

We had a good camera and took pictures of Staten Island and the Statue of Liberty. It was lovely to walk around the park and we saw some nice modern art as well as... More

We opted to visit the park for a daylight view of the statue. Great views and photos. A simple way to enjoy without the added price of the ferry and island visit.

It's hard not to enjoy your time in Battery park unless perhaps you are in line for the ferry to Ellis Island or the Statue of Liberty. The park is a beautiful green point at the tip of Manhattan filled with monuments to those who have payed the ultimate price. The sphere brought me back to September 11th. The views... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
