Located next to City Hall and several other NYC office buildings including the magnificent Municipal Building, the park offers a great respite on a hot day. The fountain is spectacular, the view of City Hall is nice and there are plenty of shaded benches on which to relax. Good place to rest up after your walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

I wouldn't make a special trip to see this small park. But if you are in lower Manhattan and especially if you are going to walk the Brooklyn Bridge (do it, see other review), then I would certainly take a few minutes to visit this park. Great architecture surrounds the park and the park has an interesting fountain and artwork.... More

It was hard to navigate around the park, but the fountain was really nice and it is very close to the city hall/Brooklyn bridge subway station which normally had street performers doing their thing. I nice little park near downtown.

The City Hall Park is a pleasant park outside the New York City Hall, east of the Woolworth Building (see that review). The City Hall itself (1812) is a forbidden landmark, not open to visitors regardless of what any guidebook says. Immediately to the north is the former Tweed Courthouse (1872), & across Centre Street is the tall Municipal Building,... More

This is a lovely park, a great rest stop downtown. Close to many civil buildings and historical ones too; I enjoy sitting looking at the Woolworth building. Also a good stop if you have just completed a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or spent time in the Financial District. The fountain is lovely and the gas lit lamps give the... More

My purpose was a statue of Nathan Hale. A soldier of the American Revolution who was considered as a spy during the intelligence-gathering mission. Then captured by the British. He is probably best remembered for his purported last words before being hanged: "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country." Only 21 years old,... 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.
