The Battery… Staying in touch

The Battery, true to its heritage as New York’s birthplace park, is open for enjoyment of the harbor and gardens. We’re working closely with The Battery’s partners in government to keep our employees and visitors safe.

In accordance with the City’s response to COVID-19, SeaGlass Carousel is closed until further notice. Birdwalks and tours have resumed. We welcome volunteers to work safely in our gardens.

Our City and its neighborhoods will pull together in spirit as we keep a healthy distance apart.

Visit The Battery

Breathtaking harbor views, vast perennial gardens, bike paths, grand lawns, an urban farm, and the fintastic SeaGlass carousel.
