The Battery Park holds a very prominent place on the historical as well as the tourist map of New York. Castle Garden, which is situated inside the Park, was the world’s first to become an immigrant depot in 1855. It is much older than Ellis Island or Statue of Liberty. Much before their construction, millions of newcomers arrived at The Battery from Europe and various other places in the world.

Although it is no more used to get inside New York, it is still flocked by various tourists to get a glimpse of the rich past of New York. There are concerts held on the ground here in the summers and all year round you can take the ferries from the docks here to get to Ellis Island or Statue of Liberty.

The flower gardens and the Waterfront are too beautiful to miss. If you love to explore the city on your foot and do not know where to start then the southern tip of this park is an ideal start point for various walking tours of the city.
