Battery Park, New York Photos

Sitting at the tip of Manhattan, Battery Park contains Castle Clinton National Monument which is a museum and the starting point for excursions to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Several statues in Battery Park commemorate immigrants, the World Trade Center, the designer of the ironclad Union ship Monitor, the defense of America's coastal waters in WW II & other bits of American history. The Battery is surrounded by modern buildings which constitute one of the prime skyline shots of New York City.
