We visited during the winter and still was able to appreciate the open space, the view of the Hudson and, in the distance, a great view of the Statue of Liberty. If you're on your way to the World Trade center, it won't hurt to walk through Battery Park on your way there (it's a 10-15 minute walk).

The moment you get out of the subway or approach the park from any direction, the harassment begins. Shady characters are everywhere, trying to convince tourists to buy tickets to see the Statue of Liberty. It can be scary. Be firm and go straight to Castle Clinton, which is where actual ferry tickets are sold.

I was attracted to this park because of the reviews that the Statue of Liberty can be seen from here. It is true, but it is really far. You need a good 200mm lens to make any good picture of it (see the pictures I have uploaded. I used a 200mm lens, I can't remember if I have extended the... More

Long park at southwest Manhattan, beggining at Rector's park until the Battery. Great place to jog, chat or just enjoy the great view.

We had about an hour to kill between touring lower Manhattan and entering the 9/11 Museum. Battery Park was a perfect place to watch the sailboats with a view of the Statue of Liberty. Parts were under construction while we were there. Don't miss the original globe from the World Trade Center.

We went to Battery Park on our way to visit the Statue of Liberty and was under renovation hence why 3 stars...once it has been renovated and during the spring/summer months it would look a lot better with the greenery Nice but weather and renovations have not shown it in all its glory

I visited with my wife and kids and this a nice small park with a good view over the river. There is not much to see here, but you can enjoy some quietness

Had a stroll around here in January. I'm sure it's much nicer in the summer to sit and watch the world go by. Not exactly the best view of the Statue of Liberty. Very far away! Nice memorials and statues in the park to look at and was quite peaceful when we were there too. Maybe not the case in... More

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.
