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

You see the New York Harbor up close. Plenty of street vendors and performers. The Staten Island Ferry terminal is next door and allows a quick trip to Staten Island. Lots of History in the Battery, and you shouldn't overlook Fort Clinton, still standing from Revolutionary times!

Battery park is located on the South of Manhattan and near the Staten Island Ferry terminal. It is a good choice to take a walk inside and also the best place to see Statue of Liberty. You can also take a ferry from the park to go to the statue.

The park is used as a gateway for the Statue of Liberty ferries and had we not had to pass through to get to it we would have missed this great little park. It was snowing when we visited so lots was boarded off however it looked like a haven for joggers as it wasn't that busy and I bet... More

The park as a whole was completley enpty when I went, so much so that I avoided a portion of it as there was no one around at all. The Sphere was outstanding and I was suprised that no one around was looking at it or knew what it was. It has an amazing story and I could spend ages... More

We were in New York during winter, so there wasn't much greenery, but it was nice to still see squirrels and little birds about. The park was reasonably quiet compared to the rest of the bustling, busy city around it, and I'm sure it would be beautiful in the warmer months. You can catch a glimpse of the Statue of... 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.
