Is the Statue of Liberty clearly visible from Battery Park? The reason I ask is that I'm trying to plan what I want to see and do and I know that the statue itself is off limits right now.

The Statue of Liberty is visable from Battery Park. While the Statue is closed, the island is open, and you can take the ferry to Liberty Island from Battery Park.

An alternative is the Staten Island ferry which passes by the statue, and offers great views of Lower Manhattan (stay in the back) and New York Bay.

And it's free.

I recommend the absolutely free staten Island Ferry as well.
