Southern End of Manhattan Island, Battery Park, New York


Check out this drone view of New York City's Battery Park, compliments of contributor odessa1799.  It's located at the southern tip of Manhattan, and derives its name from the presence of artillery pieces that were stationed here beginning in the late 1600's to defend the city.  Vestiges of this role are still visible in the form of Castle Clinton, a circular fort which is clearly visible in the video.  Since the 1970's, the area has also been home to a luxury residential development called Battery Park City.
