The park is named for the artillery that was stationed there at various times by the Dutch and British in order to protect the harbor.
At one end of the park is Pier A and Hope Garden, a memorial to AIDS victims. At the other end is Battery Gardens restaurant, next to the United States Coast Guard Battery Building. Along the waterfront, ferries depart for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
On completion, it was the largest suspension bridge in the world and the first steel-wire suspension bridge.
It is located on the eastern edge of Central Park in Manhattan, New York City, United States. It also maintains a building complex known as "The Cloisters" in Fort Tryon Park at the north end of Manhattan Island overlooking the Hudson River, which features medieval art.
The Museum was founded in 1869. Theodore Roosevelt, Sr., the father of the 26th US President, Theodore Roosevelt, was one of the founders.
