If you like water, take a trip down to Battery Park and ride the Staten Island Ferry - best bargain in NY! YOu can see Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty as well as the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and Bayonne NJ. (Home of Frank Sinatra and Baseball, to hear them tell it.)

Battery Park itself is smallish, but nicely landscaped. There is a memorial to the September 11th victims there - a globe that used to grace the front of the Towers was damaged when the buildings came down. It was salvaged and put in place in this park to give people a place to remember the victims.

The Circle Line boat tours to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island can be purchased here. Those are all-day things and require lots of walking once you reach the islands.
