"Join the Crowds at Battery Park" Battery Park Tip by DanielF

Battery Park, New York City: 99 reviews and 166 photos


Battery Park is a small green area on the lower tip of Manhattan. Facing the port, this area was an obvious location for the fortifications that defended the city originally, and to which it owes its name.

The park is lined with modern glass and steel buildings, but there are also some historical sights around that will keep you busy before queuing for your ferry to Staten Island, Ellis Island or Liberty Island, the three most popular excursions from Manhattan.

Address: Battery Park, State St. & Battery Pl., New York, NY
Directions: Take the 4 or 5 to Bowling Green Station or the N/R to South Ferry Station
