About Battery Park

Battery Park is a green, tree-filled area at the southern end of Manhattan Island in New York City. It sits on New York Harbor and welcomes visitors from all parts of the world. Tourists come and go through the park on their way to the ferries going to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

The name stems from artillery batteries, installed at the southern boundary, for protection of the city in its beginning years. The park is actually sitting on a landfill designed to front the business section that was in place in the 19th century. It has 25 acres of ground and a promenade that has appeared in many films.

A round stone fort, originally called West Battery, was built on the northern edge of the park in 1808. It is now called Castle Clinton, for Dewitt Clinton, mayor of New York City in 1815. The castle became a theater a few years later, and Jenny Lind, the world-renowned Swedish soprano, performed there in 1850.

Battery Gardens Restaurant is an upscale dining locale that sits opposite 17 State Street. It is on the water, overlooking the New York Harbor, and provides sweeping, scenic views with its menu. The outdoor beer garden is refreshing in the summer, and the Harbor View Bar is also outside. The inside of the restaurant is chic and contemporary. It is open during the hours of 11:30 a.m.--9:00 p.m., and serves lunch and dinner.

There is also a memorial, in Battery Park, for the victims of the 911 terrorist attacks. It is a large sculpture called "The Sphere," and there is an eternal flame nearby. This sculpture originally sat in the middle of the World Trade Center plaza, and most of it survived the carnage. It is a place of rest and reflection.
