Battery Park

This stylish park at the southernmost tip of Manhattan is a destination for one of the best sunsets in the city.

This waterfront park is a favorite destination for New Yorkers and tourists alike, offering a quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle of downtown New York. Overlooking the New York Bay, Battery Park is the departure point for many of New York’s ferries, including the Staten Island, Ellis Island and Liberty Island ferries. Named for the battery that protected the city during the 17th century, the park is full of history, and has played an important role in shaping contemporary New York culture. Visitors to the park can discover this through the monuments throughout the park, while enjoying one of the best sunsets in the city.

Walk through the 25 acres (10.1 hectares) of parkland to discover its attractions. Public gardens are much needed in a city as dense as New York, and locals frequent the park for jogging, socializing or and picnics. Do some people-watching, or join in yourself.

Enjoy a picnic in the gardens, a popular activity for families. From your spot on the grass, you’ll have stunning panoramic views. Gaze across the bay to the Statue of Liberty in one direction, or turn around to see the dramatic cityscape of Lower Manhattan in the other. Battery Park is a very popular spot to be at sunset, as the views across the bay are considered some of the best in New York.

Find the monuments scattered throughout the park that reflect the important issues of the city. Visit the Sphere, the sculpture that once stood in the center of the World Trade Center plaza, and see the eternal flame that was lit to remember the September 11 tragedy. Battery Park is also home to the Hope Garden, a memorial for victims of the AIDS virus.

Battery Park is located on the southernmost tip of Manhattan, and is best reached by train. The Whitehall and Bowling Green stations are both situated at the edge of the park. Visitors arriving from New Jersey or Staten Island can reach the park by ferry, as the main ferry terminal for New York City is located next to the park. Battery Park is open daily, and there is no fee for admission.
