Battery Park

Battery Park

Did you know Battery Park is named after actual artillery batteries used to defend the settlement in the early days? Located on the Southern Tip of New York Harbor, the park is still home to Castle Clinton – a small fort built before the War of 1812. In addition to the park itself, there is also the planned community of Battery Park City.

After the September 11th attacks, Fritz Koenig’s The Sphere which used to be in the center of the World Trade Center was moved to Battery Park.
