    Battery Park

    View Larger Map

    Battery Park Area at a Glance:

    • The city's first promenade, the Battery is located at the very southern tip of Manhattan and is named for the artillery battery that helped protect New York Harbor during early Dutch and English colonial days.

    • Today, Battery Park remains a focal point for many visitors as a main embarkation point for excursions across the Harbor to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

    • While here, also don't miss a tour of Castle Clinton, an important part of the Battery's early 19th century defenses and now a national monument.

    • Also nearby is the Staten Island Ferry terminal - a true New York bargain - offering free boat rides across the harbor to the outer New York City borough and featuring close-up views of the Statue of Liberty, as well as spectacular views of the downtown New York skyline on the return trip.

    Battery Park by Train: Take the 1 train to the South Ferry station, 4 or 5 train to the Bowling Green station or R/W train to the Whitehall Street station.

    Battery Park by Bus: Take the M15 "South Ferry" bus from the East Side or the M6 bus from West Side originating at 57th Street.
