“The southern tip of manhattan”
For more than 200 years, Battery Park has been an invaluable part of New York City’s history. In 1855, Castle Garden, situated inside the Park, became the world’s first immigrant depot. Decades before Ellis Island was built or the Statue of Liberty gazed down at incoming boats, millions of newcomers arrived at Battery Park from Europe and elsewhere. Although its role has changed, people from around the world still visit Battery Park for a view of the city's past. Ferries dock at its shore to pick up visitors to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and all summer long concerts play on its grounds. Its beautiful waterfront and flower gardens make Battery Park a lovely place to wander. For those who'd like a longer stroll, the park’s location at the southern tip of Manhattan makes it a classic starting point for walking tours through the city.
Great place to visit if you want to relax and take a break from your daily routine.
You can sit at the Battery Park's benches and enjoy the view at the sea and the beautiful sunset.
Loads of people were cycling at the site. We wish we could have our bicycles and take a bike tour.
This is the place you go to catch the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Check out Castle Clinton while you wait. You can learn about how the park was constructed out of landfill and what the shoreline of New York City used to look like.
