Nice to check out, right by the boats to get to The Statue of Liberty

Battery Park is right where the boats are to get to the statue of liberty so you can't miss it. They have a memorial torch there from the world trade centers. It's nice to get out... read more

I have been to NYC four previous times but this is the first time I have made it to Battery Park. The carousel is delightful and a must ride...well worth the $3.00 price tag, just to get pictures on it! The shopping is great with higher end and unusual items. There is free ice skating, if you bring your own... More

Depending on your point of view you can either enjoy the view that many of our family members had coming into this country or check out the heart of freedom and the world markets at work. Either way see why and how America got great and is great today. Family friendly, easy to get around and very pedestrian centric.

Walked to Battery Park from our Financial District Hotel near 9/11 Memorial. You can take a boat to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the park. There are various items of interest here including a fort, a memorial, and people dressed up as the Statue of Liberty. Nice views of the Statue and harbor.

The park itself is amazing enough! But most of the crowd are here for the statue of Liberty cruise or water taxi. Good view of the sea and also the Statue of Liberty from afar. The queue can be long to buy the tickets to board the cruise ship. It can be the same for the queue to wait for... More

Nothing like walking through this area and getting your view highlighted with the Statue of Liberty. A great spot to go to see the statue without paying to go out to the island. Some fun vendors in the area to check out too.

The restaurants and the view was marvelous. It was a weekend event I can't recall the name. I hate to admit it. But, I felt safe in the area. The only problem was I had difficulty getting a cab to catch a early morning flight. But, overall it was a interesting a beautiful place to to visit.

Walking in Battery Park gives you great views of the surrounding buildings and rivers. Very nice oasis close to the 9/11 site. If you want some serenity, this is a good place to find it.

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.
