  • Castle Clinton, as well as the entire Battery Park, are retired. Formerly functioned as sorting station of immigrants and today is point of sale of tickets for the statue of liberty and Ellis Island.

  • The castle is in Battery Park from wherever you have your ticket to the statue of liberty. It is round with red bricks but no other interest.

  • Very impressive in environment and conservation that is retained. Lose a little charm because it is located close to the port of embarkation for the mini cruise to the statue of liberty and ellis island, but if you look at it thinking about his historical context then you really appreciates

  • Most people only know Castle Clinton as the place where you buy tickets for Statue of Liberty and boat rides. The castle is really an old fort that was built to keep the British out. I would love to check out the little museum. I've only visited the castle because of the Statue of Liberty.
  • Located right in the Battery Park, it teaches you History lesson. Wonderful/
  • Beautiful fort from 1808 it had to protect New York (first from the British of course).
  • Be sure to see the museum, did you know this was once an island? If going to the Statue of Liberty, you are in the same general area, so don't miss it. My grandparents when they immigrated it was before Elis Island and this is where they were welcomed into the country. Amazing to see the old fort with the tall buildings in the background.
  • Nice park to walk in, but as everything in NYC is very crowded.
