Park Description

Located at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, Castle Clinton stands where New York City began, and represents not only the city's growth, but the growth of a nation. Initially intended to prevent a British invasion in 1812, the fortification has transformed over the years to welcome theatergoers, immigrants, sightseers, and now, millions of visitors to New York Harbor.
