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

A nice park centered near City Hall. Not Much to see unless your interested in Photography. There are no attractions. You will be able to see nearby spots such as City Hall. (For safety purposes City Hall is no longer available to the general tourist unless having business there.) From here you can reach J&R Music (Over Priced but a... More

Cool little park near subway Brooklyn Bride /City Hall. If planning day trip to battery park, 9/11 memorial, financial district or other nearby lower Manhattan sites, then grab some street food and relax for an hour and enjoy some sculpture. Quiet respite from the pushing, compact crowds of the SoLiberty ferry and memorial.

One of my favorite things to do in NYC is take the subway to the "High Street" stop in Brooklyn and then walk the bridge from the Brooklyn side to Manhattan. The bridge is full of mixed culture and sights - never a dull moment. It's great to watch the city unfold. The City Hall park - just a block... More
