"The Park, the Ferry and the Skyscrapers of the City"

If you want some perspective while you're in New York, there are no better places to go to than Battery Park, with its unimposing, clean and flat greenery, and the Staten Island Ferry, which offers both a way to Staten Island for commuters and a free (that's right, free) way to see Lower Manhattan's towering skyscrapers (as well as Liberty Island and the vast waterway linking the boroughs). Food and other amenities can be a little scarce this far downtown (many places close after business hours are up), but this is still a must-visit.

"Battery Park is Beautiful"

State Street runs right along Battery Park and that is honestly it's main attraction. Battery Park is a huge draw and double decker buses and tour groups are all over the place. While some would find it rather obnoxious it doesn't take away the wonder of this area. The entire neighborhood has a lot of personality and the ability to spend some time in battery park with a bottle of water and maybe an ice cream makes it all worth while. This is a must see for anyone visiting NY.

"Dont Miss This !"

Ellis Island was amazing. It is hard to put in words. Despite Ellis Island being a complex of different buildings, visitors are only allowed in the main building. In my opinion, Ellis Island is a must-see.
Don’t try to visit Ellis Island if you’re planning on leaving NYC the same day – it’s about a four-hour visit and if the line to board the ferry is already long, you’re going to find yourself racing against the clock.
