I have been to Battery Park many times, living within walking distance. I have seen it develop over the years. It is certainly a treasure. There are many activities - for children (playgrounds and activities), sports enthusiasts (tennis, basketball, boating and volley ball), diners (restaurants and bars) and even museum goers (Skyscraper and Jewish Heritage). But you don't have to... More

We walked here after our boat ride on the Staten Island Ferry. As we entered the park, we mistakenly stopped for a beer on the back, outside patio of what I believe was connected to Battery Gardens restaurant. It was unbearably hot and as we left to explore the park, we saw that we could have been enjoying a beer... More

Great little spot to visit if you are in NYC. Battery Park isn't very big but it's also not super crowded and there is a nice beer garden at the bottom of the park.

Battery Park is the perfect place for a summer stroll. Located at Manhattan's southern tip, it's a little oasis in a sea of skyscrapers good for a break from the fast pace of the city. The newly opened SeaGlass Carousel is a charming little ride perfect for kids and adults. For $5 a ride you get to step into what... More

Most people are their to get on the various ferries: taxis and site-sighting ones. Walk to the north end for the best views of both the Statue of Liberty and the One World Trade Center. It is a good starting place to walk or bike along the Hudson.

Many parts were under construction when we went but the area is lovely. Not the wild nature of my home but the cultured nature of a city park. Very lovely views of the Statue of Liberty. Will have to return when it is done!

Battery Park City does not disappoint my eyes, soul nor stomach. I jog here a lot since I live 20 minutes walking range from it. Often times I sit and read in the little "secret" garden by Pier A, have lunch at Gigino's or just walk through the museums, gardens, waters and Different Memorials. As of yet it hasn't become...

Another really attractive walk through gardens alongside the Hudson River. Beautifully laid out with many interesting (and touching) monuments and sculptures.

Nice park located in lower Manhattan, there's nothing special about it, but I liked going there. You can spend some time on hot, sunny days with kids as there are water fountains kids like to play in. You also have a great view on the Statue of Liberty from there.

Heading to the Statue of Liberty Ferry on a Sunday from the Conrad Hotel...gave ourselves plenty of time to stroll along the nearby Battery Park pathway. Great place to walk alongside the Hudson River and enjoy the views and flower gardens along the way. A well used trail by New Yorkers jogging, cycling and walking the dog, very enjoyable and...

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.
