    The tour with the ranger is worth doing. Only takes about 30 minutes, and I learned a lot of interesting things, like why Battery Park is called Battery Park.

    Named after Mayor Dewitt Clinton, the castle was constructed in the early 1800s to protect New York from attacking British Forces, and later served as one of America's first immigration stations.

    Remember to look up from inside the courtyard. The skyline feels really strange from in there.
