We stopped at Battery Park after walking over Brooklyn Bridge, it's a lovely little park with lovely views out to the Statue of Liberty across the water. It's undergoing some renovation at the moment which will be lovely when it's done. It houses some lovely statues and thoughtful memorials. My travelling companion is blind and was thrilled when a little... More

Battery Park is a lovely place to walk around, we walked from One World Trade Centre over to Brooklyn Bridge along the promenade. This is where we had our first glimpse of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. it's a lovely promenade with old fashioned lamps and benches all the way along. Views of the Hudson river and islands beyond... More

Close to the Staten Island ferry station and to Wall Street, this small park sits on the Hudson river. One can have a view of the Statue of Liberty and New Jersey from there.

There were so many different items that are hard to describe battery park but all together it is a very patriotic location between the war memorable and the never-ending flame. I would highly recommend visiting this park on any trip to NYC there is even a few subway stations in the area of battery park.

there is so much to see around this park. I found the sculpture park part outstanding and quite a surprise (the children will love it too). There really is something for everyone around the park and a great place to escape for some quiet.

My mom and I had a short window of opportunity, and wanted to get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island from lower Manhattan. As we walked toward Battery Park, we were approached by 2 men trying to sell Statue of Liberty tickets. Since this wouldn't have fit within our time frame, we declined, telling them we only wanted...

The park WILL be awesome when it is completed but right now there is really a lot of construction going on. The promenade along the water is beautiful and the view of Ellis Island and the Statue is worth the trip to the park. Don't miss visiting Castle Clinton, the history of this site is not well known and even... More

Visited the park near the ferry to Statton Island. Seemed to be lots of works going on. Great view of the Statue of Liberty.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood 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.
