I remember Battery Park being cleaner and closer to the Statue of Liberty. We didn’t have time to spend a whole day on Ellis Island, so I took the family down to Battery Park so they could see her. Walking to the Park was sketchy. The landscape was dirty; trash was all over; the actual kid parks (with swings and... More

Battery park is such a gem of a location. Directly facing the NY harbor, this park in its true sense gives a sense of calmness and peace to the visitors leaving behind all the chaos. If you are taking the Liberty cruise, it is definite that you pass by 'The Sphere' but if you are not, make sure you visit... More

It was raining pretty good on the morning we visited to peer out at the Statue of Liberty. I would recommend shoes that you are wiling to get soaked or sandals. The walkways were flooded by huge puddles in some spots and wearing sandals allowed me to walk through them while carrying Daughter to keep her feet dry. Some puddles... More

Go at sunset so you can get different, impressive views and take pictures with backgrounds that differ by the hour, as foreground details blend into darkness, and background lights become prominent.

A really great miniature golf course. Free admission to a lighthouse tender (the "Lilac", scruffy, but interesting) and free kayaking . Free arts stuff for children. Great dog runs, separate ones for little dogs and big ones. Water in both. A lovely inexpensive day out in lower Manhattan. Reasonably priced concession stands. $2 water or soda as opposed to $4...

This park is located just outside the metro (line 1) so it's very easy to access this park. My guess is that most people who visit this park just pass through it to get to the ferry to Liberty Island, but there is actually more to do here. There is for example restaurants, cafés, plenty of boats in the harbour... More

If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of NYC go to Battery Park and then stop by the Jewish Museum which has a wonderful series of permanent and temporary displays.

I have stayed in this area in both winter and summer. It is lovely during the summer. In winter, the cold winds make it miserable. Last visited in July 2014 -- weather was beautiful, but hot. Lovely to walk in this area, especially along the water. Just very relaxing and lovely.
