  • The castle is a small national monument. They sell the tickets to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island there. It's free to walk around. There is a little history but overall not a whole lot to see.  more »

  • Just a pretty cool old outpost that now houses the statue cruises ticketing windows.
  • ​Nice little stop while walking around Lower Manhattan. Stop by to learn about this historic place, enjoy the scenic views, and maybe buy something from the gift shop.
  • 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).
