Lovely place at the end of the financial district

We went for a walk around here. It is right next to the Goldman Sach's building. The weather was awesome and we could see the Statue of Liberty

Yes as the others say, it undergoing renovations.....but that didn't take away enjoying the park. Enjoyed watching the "street performers", the Spring flowers were blooming, it was pretty. It's clean, pretty view of the Statue of Liberty and the river. We took the Staten Island Ferry (it's free) right next to the park across the river to see the Statue... More

I love taking a taxi or subway down to battery park to get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. It's always a pretty walk in the park with the flowers blooming and a visit to the memorials there. There is still park construction, on-going , but don't let that keep you away. There is plenty to see and a... More

It was my first time at Battery Park and it was amazing. I always put Central Park as my first option but Battery Park was a great surprise. We went by bike and we had the opportunity to see all the places, including the dog Park. I was so envy of New Yorkers... I have a dog and there was... More

At the very end of Manhattan island you will find Battery Park. Not your traditional park, it is mainly paved pathways with areas of green space. A nice break from the city, but currently undergoing renovation.

Battery Park is a beautiful little haven on southern most tip of Manhattan. Perfect for a spot of lunch after walking round the financial village and such. Plenty of statues in the park such as the Merchant Marines, Korean War monuments. Beware Battery Park is currently undergoing some renovations and work but this is not impeding on the beauty of...

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.
