Battery Park is a pretty park located by the harbour at the very bottom of Manhattan.

We wandered through on a sunny morning, enjoying the spring blossoms.

It is from here that I had my first glimpse of the Statue of Liberty - how exciting!! I could just make her out through the smog.

From Battery Park you can catch a ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue. The Staten Island Ferry leaves from the pier to the left of the park (when you are looking out to sea).

We sat for a while in the park, enjoying the sun, watching the ferries and trying to take photos of the occasional squirrel!!

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.

The bottom of Manhattan.
