“Address The Battery Date 1811 Where it gets its name From DeWitt Clinton, the early 19th-century mayor of New York City (as well as New York governor and failed Federalist presidential candidate). What it was before A fort called Southwest Battery, which had successive stints as an immigration holding center, the New York City Aquarium, a restaurant and opera house. Why it’s notable During the War of 1812, the fort—along with three others in the harbor—was heavily armed to protect against British naval advances. What it is now The curved, sandstone building down in the Battery is the place to depart for ferries to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island; the National Parks Service which operates Castle Clinton, runs brief guided tours of the building and its grounds. Fast fact Despite its active presence during wartime, no shots were ever fired from, or on, Castle Clinton. ”
