As you can see from the last photo, you don't get a great view of the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park, but you can get the Liberty or Ellis Island Ferry to get there. There are not a lot of parks in the Financial District of downtown NYC. This is a great place to escape the caverns of skyscrapers for a while, get some air, and enjoy the view. Something similar to what I said about Bryant Park in Midtown.

This is the last stop of my walking tour of the southern end of Manhattan. You can follow the arrows backwards to see the whole thing. Another walking tour in downtown NYC starts out in Greenwich Village. I suggest you take the "1" train to Christopher Street / Sheridan Square to start that tour.

These photos were taken 2002 - 2009.
