Battery Park is located in the southwest tip of Manhattan. The name derives from artillery batteries that were positioned out to sea to protect Dutch settlers back when the city was called New Amsterdam. The park is easily accessible by ferry, Subway, bus, train (PATH) or bike. There are also numerous memorials and points of interest around the park. I will expand in the future. However, my main focus in this post is on the views you get from the park. During summertime, the sunsets cast spectacular rays over Jersey City. So when you’re there, take front row seats by the waterfront and enjoy the view! As Daft Punk once sang, "we're up all night 'til the sun."
