Capture the Sunset at Battery Park

Added by The Outbound Collective

25-acre public park. Tons of backgrounds to choose from. Amazing views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Bring a picnic and make a night of it.

Located at the Battery, the southern tip of Manhattan Island in New York City, facing New York Harbor. The Battery is named for the artillery batteries that were positioned there in the city's early years to protect the settlement behind them. There's also multiple transportation going on underneath the park...which makes it truly unique.

Set up about 30 minutes before sunset, get the angles right and let the sun work it's magic. Depending on the time of year you may be alone or with 100 of your closest friends. If you come early enough you can set up a picnic spot, have a snack, get your shots then enjoy the rest of the night with someone special.

Gets crowded, but do it

All the parks near the seaport are very similar. You can't go wrong with sunset over here on the water.
