Named for Battery Park, the green space at the lower tip of Manhattan, this residential neighborhood features soaring apartment towers and plenty of recreational space. Among its attractions are the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Irish Hunger Memorial. Major downtown destinations like the 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church are nearby. Visitors can shop in Brookfield Place, an upscale mall that includes a food court with offerings from some of the City’s top chefs, and take in picturesque waterfront views while strolling through Hudson River Park.
The American Family Immigration History Center at Ellis Island, an archive of more than 50 million Port of New York passenger arrival records and 900 ship pictures circa 1892–1957, allows you to explore your family’s arrival in America.
At its core, the Museum of Jewish Heritage provides not only a remembrance of the past, but also the promise of a better future.
