Battery Park

Local nameBattery Park
LocationNew York City, USA

This park, located at the southernmost tip of Manhattan, is a park worth visiting for many reasons. Not only will it provide some rest from the sometimes stressful nature of the city, but it is also filled with interesting monuments of American history. Also, you can enjoy a nice view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Castle Clinton, which is part of the park (and was once used as a fortress protecting New Amsterdam), was the first American immigration station before the one on Ellis Island was opened.

Today, the park is filled with many memorials: e.g. The Sphere – a sculpture that was originally placed at the World Trade Centre Plaza and now serves as 9/11 memorial or the East Coast Memorial dedicated to the memory of the soldiers that were killed in World War II.
