We had beers in the beer garden in Battery park and the beer was really cheap for good craft beer. It's also a cute little quiet beer garden that wasn't that crowded. I would highly recommend it.

A shady area on hot June days, with a fair view of the Statue of Liberty. Benches for resting and play pools to cool down in. Restaurant near by (untried).

Tucked away behind the Staten Island Ferry and the public park is a haven for drinks, dinner or parties. The outside deck faces the Statue of Liberty and the restaurant inside is beautiful. First found it when invited to a shower then have returned just...More

I had hoped for a better than mediocre meal. But that is what it was. Chicken salad on a plate with colored endive. And a strange tasting salad at that. Four different servers showed up and the table and all were very standoffish. Lovely view...More

This is not a good restaurant. We have been seated in the waterfront. The view is amazing but the table and chairs are rusty. Staff is not knowledgeable about the job that they have to do. Constantly spill out water, a glass of wine was...More

We booked this restaurant because of the view and visited the day before to check it out. The interior is tired and thus the venue was not suitable for the event we were arranging. I am sure the food is great but the decor is...More

By far my least favourite eatery on our holiday. The views are nice, that and the constant water supply was good. However the greeter and servers had faces like if it was a tragedy we'd turned up. The food (we had the set menu), was...More

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
