I love the walk along the Esplanade to Battery Park. The view over the East River to New Jersey is great. You don't feel like you are in the City is so peaceful.

It's an interesting place to visit while in Lower Manhattan. Close to the Staten Island Ferry and Wall Street. WARNING: A lot of the restaurants in the area are closed on Saturday and Sunday. You might want to eat somewhere else, although there are some restaurants that remain open on weekends. Alternatively, you can take a short subway ride to... More

We mostly just walked through the park to get to and from the ferry for Liberty Island but afterward we did spend a little time here. We grabbed a hot dog and watched some street performers from Showtime NYC which was pretty cool. There was a lot of construction going on when we visited but it looks like it is... More

Battery Park is the southern tip of Manhattan, you get a great view of the skyline and the east river.

This park and the walkway north along the west coast of Manhattan at least to the level of Tribeca (perhaps also further up) is a nice alternative for a walk. There is great playground for kids bit north of Battery park with both 'vet' and dry sections. Good place to push a stroller or have a run!

Worth a visit for the views. There was a lot of building work going on. Pleasant coastal walks but a lot of it restricted by commercial enterprises.

Whenever I'm in New York I always head to Battery Park. There is a lovely walkway by the waters edge that takes you around the bottom of Manhattan. Great for a run or bike ride or gentle stroll with friends or kids. There are plenty of small grassy areas for kids to play and benches to sit on and take... More

Spend a couple of hours here in the shade watching the kids play. The splash play area really thrills the children (and some adults) who shreik and shout with each erupting geyser. And I don't normally like noisy kids. Food vendors abound for good street food and the free Staten Island ferry is there if you want to do something... More

I just had this distant memory of the park from the werewolf movie when I was a kid. Wanted to say I had been there. It is much cooler as an adult Army veteran knowing that this is a place that defended the city. Check another cool place off the list.

Great place to walk around and enjoy New York City. Good collection of food vendors. Beautiful water views, and you can see the Statue of Liberty.

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.
