Castle Clinton

The Battery’s major landmark, Castle Clinton National Monument has played many roles in the history of New York for over 200 years. Owned and administered by the National Park Service, it is the centerpiece of the Conservancy’s revitalization efforts.

There is no better example of historic adaptive reuse than Castle Clinton/Castle Garden. Enriched by all of its past roles in history, it now has the potential to welcome, educate, and inspire visitors about The Battery’s history and to become a hub to orient visitors to the constellation of attractions in Lower Manhattan, the Harbor and the Hudson Valley.
