Was there on the way to the Statue of Liberty. Nice craft beer available close-by. Check out the famous Bull, while you are there.

We walked here from our hotel and had a nice time taking in all that the park had to offer. Some construction is going on but you can still have plenty to see and do. We took a ferry from here to see the Statue of Liberty and go to Ellis Island.

We (a couple) visited this park by chance while trying to find the right place to observe Statue of Liberty from the distance. Our satisfaction jumped on a maximum level when we saw a direct view to the statue. The weather during our visit was very hot, so our high satisfaction from the view was combined with sweat and dizziness.... More

Despite this park being marked as a fairly large place on maps it was a bit of a disappointment when we got there. Whilst it had the best view of Liberty Island and Governers island from the mainland this is about all it had - the park was nothing really when we walked through it we were done in minutes... More

It looked like there was lots of construction going on when we visited last week. There were not a lot of people around and it pretty much looked fairly abandoned. However once you got close to the water, thats where most of the people were fishing! You get a great view of the Statue of Liberty!

Though NY city is considered as the busiest and crowded city, there are some places through which you can find your solitude and one of them is battery park. Visit at Dusk and you can see the NY skyline as well as a calm environment.

We bought some of our best souvenirs at Battery Park. I loved the street dancers. They were so NEW YORK! Don't miss it if you go!

Great walking along the water or lounging around the greenery. Watch the cruise lines or even dragon boat races and big container ships. You'll never know what you might see.

I only saw a part of Battery Park whilst I went to catch the Ferry to Statue of Liberty. Part of the park is under developed so it didn't look that great but I am sure it will once the developments have been finished

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.
