Nice and not so hectic location providing a great view on Statue of Liberty, Ellis and Governors Island. Tip: talk a walk from the One World Trade Center alongside the Hudson river to get there.

Not too big park with couple of interesting places in it. Here we found the globe - for example - that was originally located at the Word Trade Center. Also there is a microcache in the park for geocachers! Good luck for finding it!

Not a very big park and quite dirty. There is an area towards Brodway blv where you can sit on chairs and enjoy the sun and grass. That seemed nice.

The park is the gate way to the American icon. The Statue of Liberty and is nice to stroll and take in the view of Lady Liberty. This should be on everyone's bucket list.

I just love the parks in New York City! Each has character that makes it unique. Battery Park is no exception. It faces the harbor and was once the site of a 17th century fort that protected Manhattan. How could this park not be my favorite?

It is a starting point to go the financial district and also taking a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The park was nice! :-)

We went to the park to get the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, after getting the ferry back we did enjoy a stroll through the park. When approaching the park one does get hounded by people selling tickets for the ferry and there are a lot of food-stalls. The park was very clean and well-maintained; I... More

There's subway stops within a few blocks for easy transportation. Special note: There's a... 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.
