  • It is a pleasant place to take a walk. Parking is available just outside by the water. We walked around toward the water, and then made a left turn which would have included the entire water area incl...  read more »
  • This is a fairly nice play for a walk or biking. It is usually very quiet and have a nice water view. There is a pool that is open during the summer. 
  • Quiet but not empty. You are definitely safe and the base/park are kept tidy. Beautiful views of the bay and park. Great feeling of history and present-day local government in motion. 
  • This place is manicured to the top. Clean with lots of green around you. This park has something you rarely see in New York parks - clean bathrooms! Good for biking or running around. Has a baseball field, kids playground and amazing views of the water. Definitely an upscale park.
  • Beautiful waterfront, great for walks, hanging out and much more. The rugged walkway of big rocks makes a great place for fishing.
  • Beatiful sight, love this peaceful park.
  • One of my favorite places in NYC. The battery is only open from April to November, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm or by appointment. But the rest is open all year. Usually, the park is pretty empty even in summer, so the walks are quiet. There are some of the old houses that have been renovated and are being used by EMT, some others are empty and some that are covered in growing green! Some areas feel like ghost towns, check the kids playground all the way in the back, it's all full of rust, it looks like from a horror movie. There's a lot of military and EMT personnel around, but if you are not doing anything wrong, nobody will bother you. The places that are restricted are marked. Check the urban park rangers calendars as there are some interesting events available. From time to time they have a star gazing event, considering you are still in NYC, the night sky is pretty OK, you won't see the milky way, but it is a nice activity. The parking lot is open again with plenty of space.
  • Quiet, clean, and serene. Great place to relax and jog
