What a lovely park to visit. Pro's.... Great views of the Hudson, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in the distance, the Heleport just a few minutes walk away if you fancy taking the Air-Tour of NY. The Vietnam War Memorial is also in this Park. The only downside from our visit there is the fact they are right... More

A great park on the southern most edge of Manhattan. From the park you can see the Statue of Liberty. Also nice views of the Hudson, and New Jersey. The park is connected to the Esplanade that runs on the east side all the way to 125th. Many places to sit and relax. I am always a fan of green... More

It was a relief to get here because we were rushing for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and once we reached Battery Park, we knew we had arrived.!! This is a lovely relaxing busy little place. It is great to take timeout. After our tour of the Statue, we got coffee in the nearby restaurant and sat on... More

We visited in early March, when the park was under several inches of snow which made it very pretty, particularly with the backdrop of clear blue sky. But there is a lot of building work in progress (although nothing actually happening, possibly due to the weather) so large areas are unaccessible and the whole place feels a bit derelict. There...

This place takes you to Woody Allen's movies sited in New York. Such a calm place to sit on benches, and take a while watching the sunset, or just admiring NY skyline! The perfect place to walk your love, friend or even your dog! Amazing place!

Great green space. A handy walk or cycle along a beautiful waterside walkway if staying at the Conrad round at the World Financial Centre, Good jumping off point for Staten Island or the Statue of Liberty tours.

We had a great time walking alongside the river in Battery Park. It was a beautiful day! The views were great. We could see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Jersey City skyline. The park itself was very well kept. There was a lot of monuments and art pieces. It was an enjoyable walk! There were people fishing... More

Fort Clinton is a neat little fort, still standing from the Revolution War Era. From here you can buy tickets to get to the Statue of Liberty via the ferry. But we found people watching and walking along the river to be the best adventure for us, as you can walk this route to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. We... 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.
