My son and I decided to create our own tour of New York dubbed the "Person of Interest" tour. Stop one after taking the Staten Island ferry was to play chess in Battery Park as Finch did against the machine. Myth: There are no chess boards around. You can find the spot where the filming took place and line up... More

You get ferry at Battery park to Statue of Liberty, once you come back after visiting the Statue, take stroll in the Park . Beautiful and refreshing , specially in the Spring and when flowers are blooming.

Visually spectacular. Motions I've never experienced. Gentle. I count four degrees of motion: The main turntable rotates. The inner turntables rotate and reverse. The fish in which you ride goes up and down. It also rotates and reverses. Suggest you look at the Web site for good photos. HINT: The smaller the fish the higher up it goes. There are... More

We always enjoy spending time in NYC, regardless of the area or time of year. Staying in, spending time in, Battery Park is always a welcome rest from the rest of Manhattan, however. We are almost always there on weekends so the activity is some less than a weekday but it is great to be able to take a walk... More

I went to Battery Park this summer on my 3rd trip to NYC, I didn't have the time to go before. I looooved it! I could spend the entire day there and its surroundings. It's a calm, beautiful, peaceful place.

Very nice place to visit and have a walk after visiting lower Manhattan. You can see the Liberty Statue from very far away, there are some cafes and it is near the Ferry to Staten Island

there are a few little bits and bobs to see here before you go a climb aboard your ferry to whichever island. Make sure you see the orbs and the burning flame from the twin towers.

Walking through battery park is awesome, this park is so big. It's actually a perfect place for you to take your partner for a walk, talk around and enjoy the scenery, fresh air breezing through your skin. There's a lot of fast food chains or restaurants around the area. If you're planning to go to liberty island or ellis island,... More

You'll probably pass through here at some point, as it's on the way to Ellis Island, Staten Island ferry and the Statue of Liberty, while being just south of the business district and the One WTC, but there's really nothing special about the park itself.

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.
