Jaunt in Battery Park City

The other day my husband and I decided to take a walk and see some New York City sites. We headed over to Battery Park City which is located in Downtown on the Western tip of the Island. Yes, Battery Park City is a neighborhood in New York City. has a beautiful promenade:
And has a great view of the Statue of Liberty:
Its even got its own little harbor:
We also got to see the Irish Hunger Memorial which is nearby. The memorial is a big landscape of flowers, grass, stones, etc. which replicate the homeland of the Irish immigrants to the United States.
The view of New Jersey from the Irish Hunger Memorial:
Here's a beautiful pond in front of the Memorial:
I love seeing all the flowers and greenery in the city. If you think New York City is all buildings and brownstone, think again:
And I love the cool light poles. Just had to snap a photo:
After our jaunt in Battery Park City, we headed for some beers and appetizers at one of our favorite places, Walkers. If you are in the city, order a beer from Brooklyn Brewery...yum!

Here's just a random street shot:

And I had to snap this because it just made me laugh:

Hope you enjoyed this tour!
