We went down to Battery Park on the day before we to leave NYC. And of course it was one of the coldest days of our trip. Just as a note, bundle up during the winter and bring a jacket during any other season due to the winds. From the end of the park, you can see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You can take a ferry out to see them for cost. You can find the ticket booth for that in Castle Clinton. I would have done it if not for the extreme cold weather. As I continued to walk through the park, there was a rather large Navy and Air Force Memorial that faced out to sea. The park is a great place to take a break with the family (on a nice day, that is).
