Castle Clinton - Battery Park
Battery Park is one of New York City’s oldest public parks. At 25 acres (10 hectares), it's also Downtown New York's largest public space. The Battery was where the Dutch settlers lived, back when this little outpost was known as New Amsterdam. This area of waterfront parkland is also a hub of transport options for New York Harbor. Castle Clinton in Battery Park is where ferries for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island board and return. A modern hub teeming with tourists, residents, nearby office workers, and students - this is a popular stop on the tourist agenda.
