The name Broadway immediately evokes images of theatres and musicals, but the theatre district is only a small part of this 24-kilometre-long street. Broadway runs at an angle through Manhattan from north to south, slicing through the chessboard-like street map of the city. Follow this iconic street and you will certainly learn more about this fascinating city.
Battery Park, a city park of approximately 8.5 hectares, lies on the southern tip of Manhattan on the banks of the Hudson River. During the Dutch colonization period, a battery of cannons stood here, hence the name. The 19th-century Castle Clinton is another landmark. But most people come to Battery Park to board the boat to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, or to ride the Staten Island Ferry. The latter is free and offers great views of the Manhattan skyline and Lady Liberty.
