Battery park is just amazing! Especially in early autumn. In order to understand its beauty you should come and see it, because I truly believe that no one can describe this place by words. It has beautiful view on Statue of Liberty and city. This is a place for rest, relax and enjoying amazing spirit of New York. Must see.

Great view of the Statue and Brooklyn Bridge from a distance. Your not right on it, but the view is breathtaking and if your going to see the 9/11 museum this is great if you have a wait time. It's in walking distance, there's a mall, and they even have an ice skating rink that was very reasonably priced. You... More

Always something going on at Battery Park. It is also where you access the Staten Island Ferry. There is a subway stop right next to the park.

If you park in one of the side streets in the Financial District and then walk into the entrance of the park off of Battery Place or State St, you can walk through to the docks and pier. When you first enter the park, there is this beautiful lotus fountain with water lilies and benches surrounding it that holds for... More

peaceful spot to sit and relax. Nice to see green in the concrete jungle. An old fort to explore. Benches are nice to sit and observe Statue of Liberty, monuments and sculptures are nice.

You can spend a nice evening looking at the hudson river and taking a pleasant walk in the park. The gardens here are beautiful and have some real lovely flowers. You can even take a city bike or jog along the path. An obvious choice for pleasant evening walk.

I love visiting this park. It's an oasis for all ages as well as a green, beautiful way to get from Chambers Street to the southern tip of Manhattan. Surprises include a skateboard park, monumental totemic sculptures, chessboards, a sailing club, gardens to sit in, eateries, memorials to the Holocaust and the Irish Potato Famine as well as 9/11.

I set out to walk from midtown to Battery Park one lovely May morning. What an exciting walk that was! There was so much to see going on. The park was a peaceful respite. Cabbed back!
