Museum of Jewish Heritage
The Museum of Jewish Heritage, at the lower tip of Battery Park City, is living memorial to those who died in the Holocaust. It has artifacts on Jewish life before the Holocaust, a very emotional exhibit about the Holocaust (families with young kids are advised to skip parts) and an exhibit on life after.
The immigration exhibit has views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
You can see the outdoor contemplative Andy Goldsworthy work, "Garden of Stones," without paying museum admission.
