A little disappointed at Battery park

The park was being dug up when we went there so not much going on, although my friend had visited previously and said it was brilliant.

We were out of town wedding guests for a reception at this venue and loved it. The building has two levels each with its own bar and washrooms and fantastic views of the confluence of the Hudson and East Rivers. It was an evening event and the outside courtyard was lit up and looked spectacular. An added touch was being... More

We had a wonderful time. We met the head chef as we were walking into the park. He showed us to our seats outside since a wedding was going on inside. We had the best Tomato Basil soup we ever had and our Pizza was beautiful. Not only did it taste good, it was decorated with edible pansies. The best... More

The view of the East Hudson River was beautiful. We were sitting outside because there was a wedding going on inside. The head chef we talked to made our experience wonderful. The best Basil Tomato soup we ever had and the pizza was the most beautiful (edible flowers on it) pizza ever. It tasted good also. The server was an... More

I had my wedding here in February 2015 and everything was absolutely beautiful. Michele (Event Coordinator) and her team are the absolute BEST. I cannot emphasize how good they are - the service is impeccable, they are absolutely on top of everything, yet still flexible and accommodating to specialized requests. From the early appointments, to the tasting, onsite visits before... More

This very up market restaurant is just the place to sit and watch the river traffic go by and see the Statue of Liberty when the sun go's down.

After my family traveled to Ellis Island, we decided to eat at this restaurant since it was right on the Hudson River. Beautiful scenery!! However, the food and experience was horrible. We only ordered water for our drinks & mine had a fly in it and bread crumbs. Waiting to get a refill for water, he never came back until... More

As part of my job, I find venues to host my Agencies Summer and Holiday parties! Battery Gardens has been an amazing venue to work with. There are about 900-1000 employees and partners in NYC. Sometimes we have multiple smaller events and sometimes we do a larger and a few small events. Over the past 7 years we have hosted... 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.
