Not only is there a spectacular view of Lady Liberty, but the art in the park is absolutely beautiful.

Battery park is a lovely 25 acre swarth of green at the southern tip of Manhattan Island bordered by beautiful buildings and New York's harbor. It is the ferry gateway to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island which begins at Fort Clinton where tickets may be purchased. Street performers and vendors are commonplace.

One of a few places other than Central Park in NYC you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the city - There is normally something going on in the park for you to watch or get involved in - or just grab a seat and look out over the river.

I've visited many times as a child and remember the park filled with hagglers trying to sell us watches and glasses. I'm not sure if it's the time of day we went or they just no longer haggle there but the park was empty of these people. It was actually really peaceful, full of great flora, and still (of course!)... More

In the middle of a very hot day, we took a little break in this beautiful waterfront park. There are great open views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and lots of benches to rest and watch the passers-by. We happened upon a very cute fish-themed merry-go-round and took a little ride.

We arrived at Batter Park hungry and thought this would be s great spot for lunch. The decor was lovely. The prices were high but expected that for this location. However the food was very ordinary. We ordered the goat cheese salad and pizza to share. Only water for drinks as we were not in the mood for anything else.... More

While the park is nice, the esplanade is incredible. Fantastic views, beautiful plants, and incredibly clean. There are plenty of places to sit along the way and the near canopy of trees offers a plenitude of shade until mid-day.

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.
