New York Battery Park area

Visiting New York and ended up in Battery Park area? If you are close to Battery Park, that is located on the southern tip of Lower Manhattan, you should know that this is one of the best New York attractions to explore. This 25 acre of public park was the original place where immigrants were welcomed into the city. Over 8 million immigrants walked through this park just before Ellis Island became the main station for arrivals. There are many attractions to admire in this park such as the Castle Clinton. This is the only fortress that remains in Manhattan and it is considered to be a National Historic Monument since 1946. You can also see the Sphere here which was previously inside the World Trade Center, before it was attacked. Also Castle Gardens, where opera shows take place sometimes, is worth checking out.

From Battery Park area, many tourists take a ferry to go to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Admire the iconic Statue of Liberty at Liberty Island and be wowed by his New York attraction which is 151 feet tall. To have a fantastic view of the city, climb the 354 steps inside the statue. Getting to Liberty Island is quite costly therefore we suggest you purchase a New York Pass or New York City Pass which will give you free entrance to the ferry and the statue. These passes will save you a lot of money on your vacation. Ellis Island is yet another NYC attraction that shouldn’t be missed. This is the place where many people began their American dream.
