The Seaglass Carousel is beautiful. The lights, the music everything is amazing. If you can go at sunset it's better because you can appreciate the lights even more. It a really nice excursion with kids.

This lovely green space incorporates fort Clinton and has a war memorial which is poignantly arranged with the large bronze statue pointing towards the SoL. The waves rock against the shoreline and there's plenty of space to stretch your legs and relax from the hurried...More

Walked around here while picking up tickets for Statue of Liberty, staff was excellent. It was snowing the day we were there so we didn't get to explore the area as much as we would have liked to.

Nice views, easy to get there by subway. Its recomended to go on a sunny day, when its not to cold. Take a walt or take the south ferry (free of charge) to get closer to the statue of loberty.

This appears to be a nice peaceful park but spoilt by the volume of ticket touts for the sightseeing ferries and tours. My advice is go to Central Park, much more relaxing. If you want to get great views of the Statue of Liberty, why...More
