Due to its open air construction, all activities are considered outdoors at Castle Clinton.
You can take a Ranger-guided tour of the Castle, listen to a concert, jump on a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, or just sit on a bench and enjoy your lunch at the foot of Manhattan.
Did You Know?
Castle Clinton was very nearly destroyed in the 1940’s as part of a project to build a second Brooklyn bridge. The project was not stopped, but moved underground. Today the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel runs directly under the building.
