Battery Park City

Irish Hunger Memorial – Full Access Quick Trip

By Seth Fera-Schanes

If you find yourself in Battery Park City, consider heading to the corner of North End Avenue and Vessey Street.  Here you will find the Irish Hunger Memorial which serves as a remembrance of The Great Famine in Ireland from 1845-1852.

This is a unique space with rolling grassy hills, stone cottage and solemn hallway that takes visitors to the inside of the structure.  The Irish Hunger Memorial is a little out of the way if you are not familiar with New York.  One of the easiest routes would be to take the E train down to the World Trade Center stop and walk west toward the Hudson.
