If you have visited statue of Liberty from NYC you would have gone through battery park but you wouldn't have spent much time. If you have some time before or after your ferry, spend some time here. It is quite and green. walking paths and Benches to see lady liberty are additional features. One caution would be, Beware of people... More

We really enjoyed the walk round from Battery City to the Staten Island ferry (the further part round past the piers to Brooklyn Bridge was less good, and Brooklyn Bridge itself is so overcrowded to walk that it does rather spoil the experience). However, the first part is charming and relaxed, and a detour can be made to visit the... More

Nice place to take a break, relax and enjoy the sunset and the view. After sunset We walk directly to the Freedom Tower and took nice pictures of the light beams (tribute to the towers). You can't miss it.

We finally got the chance to explore more of south Manhattan. THE PARK: Good views of the side of Lady Liberty, and the Staten Island ferries. The east end can be noisy from the constant helicopters landing & taking off from the Wall St helipad. There were nice walking paths but a lot of them were closed due to maintenance... More

My suggestion for now is to skip thi spark. You will walkthrough it if you are taking the ships to SOL or Ellis Island but otherwise all you will see is construction fences everywhere and a lot of dead grass. There are much better parks to spend your time in.

One of my favorite parks in New York city - although it is always very busy, because the ferries to Liberty Island are starting from here. It is still fun to stroll around and look at all the monuments or take a break at the waterfront and take pictures of Lady Liberty in the distance. And if you are lucky,... More

Battery park is by far my favorite park in the city. It might even be a strong contender for my favorite spot in the city. It's beautiful and has great places for walks and sitting and staring at the water. It has a sort of peace about it. It's so classic NY to also see the old men playing chess... More

Had lunch at the Beer Garden, which was very pleasant, and watched the ships go by. The Statue of Liberty was iconic. I liked the Navy Memorial as well.

Nice location at the bottom of Manhattan to see the castle, Brooklyn tunnel, war memorial and the Globe especially if boarding the ferry to Liberty island.
