The ferry ride is very short, only about three minutes and your in Manhattan so there wasn't a lot of time for photos on the ferry,
We made up for it though! There is lots to see in this area of Manhattan. Since its right on the water their our tons of boats: yachts, cruise ships, small boats, big boats, you get the idea.
You can also see right across the river to Jersey City
Sports are plentiful you can play tennis, soccer, basketball, go kayaking, play mini golf, there is even a beach volleyball court:
If sports aren't your thing you might like the gardens along the waterfront path ways. Dogs aren't allowed in these but they can walk on the paths past them. There is even a duck pond.
My favorite part is the Irish Hunger memorial. This is a memorial in memory of the Irish Potato famine and also a reminder of current world hunger. It was made using stones and native plans and even a cottage brought to New York from Ireland. It really does look like a piece of the Irish country side and its quite weird and wonderful to find it in Manhattan. Dogs are not allowed inside but we took Weasley's picture in front of the memorial.
If you prefer art then the sculptures in the Rockefeller Park might interest you. Created by Tom Otterness they are designed to be interacted with by humans, and canines, who visit the park:
Of course Battery Park City also has an actual dog park, its small, but it has Sprinklers!
We finished our Battery Park City outing with a treat Weasley really appreciated cupcakes from Sprinkles at Hudson Easts. They make a dog friendly version:
After our cupcakes it was time to head back home on the ferry.
