If you happen to be in the area, this lighthouse is a nice memorial to visit.

It is a nice a red to wander.

This is a small park in what now is known as FiDi ( Financial District). It borders the old seaport district of New York and is very close to the original city of New Amsterdam.
The Titanic Memorial Lighthouse is worth a look. It was built with public funds after the Titanic disaster. Plenty of things to do in the old Seaport such as eating, drinking, and sights to see.

Erected a year after the disaster, this 60-foot lighthouse was the first ever monument to those lost in the Titanic. It was built at the insistence of Molly Brown, a survivor of the sinking and was funded by public donations. To this day, it remains the only public memorial dedicated to all those who died in the disaster (other monuments commemorate individual victims, nationalities or professions). It originally stood beside the East River, atop the 13-storey Seaman’s Church Institute, but was moved to its current location in 1976. A small ‘park’ was created around it. The lighthouse is faded and peeling; its time ball (which used to drop down the pole at twelve noon each day) stopped working in 1967; and the garden is full of weeds. Whilst it does not warrant travelling a great distance unless you are a Titanic fan, it is worth a quick stop if you are in the South Street area, perhaps visiting the maritime museum with its historic ships or one of the many restaurants and bars.

Just a lighthouse statue and a few flower beds. Not worth traveling a great distance for. Good sight seeing around the area though.

We dropped our bike into our bike rental company and walked back to our bus while we met and acrossed this memorial lightinghouse.
Was interesting to watch that, and deep inside we hoped that DiCaprio or Winslet turns at the corner hand in hand..... :) :) :)
They did not do that :( :(

Not much of a park as it suggests but a small area in downtown Mahattan marking the memory of the Titanic as she was to dock in New York. Insisted by the unsinkable Molly Brown to be build in memory of those who died it is a nice piece of history in the middle of the city.

Wouldn't even have noticed it there even though it's a lighthouse in the financial district.
The commemorative plaque is interesting though.
If you're in the area, do go take a look. But don't bother to make the trip just for this, unless you're an inconditionnal fan.

The Titanic Memorial lighthouse is in the historic south Street seaport area. It is a free exhibit dedicated to the loss of the lives of those passengers on the Titanic. The Memorial is 60-feet tall and inspired by Margaret Brown, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, survivor of the Titanic.

This lighthouse was erected at the insistence of Molly brown who survived the sinking and was instrumental in the creation of this monument, it was moved to its current location in 1976 which is why it isn't by the sea anymore.

Well worth taking a look as you visit the area.

I see lots of people saying it's just an old lighthouse, it's not worth the trip... However what most don't realize is the historical importance of this monument. It was the first ever monument to those lost in the Titanic to be erected, built only a year after the ship sank, and only exists because of the insistence of Molly Brown herself. It might look dated nowadays, but that's because it's been around for more than 100 years! It's not just another Titanic memorial, it's THE Titanic memorial. Definitely visit it while you're Downtown and then explore the wonderful South Street Seaport.
