The McCallisters are ready to spend a few days of Christmas vacation in Florida. If Kevin’s last “forgetfulness” misadventure from the previous year is on everyone’s mind, parents check several times to make sure their son is with them.
Arriving at the airport, Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) got on the wrong plane and left for New York. He stays at the Plaza and goes exploring the city to pass the time.
He thus finds himself in Battery Park and observes the majestic Statue of Liberty, even through a telescope.
Macaulay Culkin’s million-dollar fee for this film.
Kevin’s mother, Kate (Catherine O’Hara) worried that in the script, her character doesn’t look out for her son enough. Scenes were then added to show his anguish.
Located on the southern tip of the island of Manhattan, Battery Park is a beautiful 24.72 acre green space in New York City.
The Financial District is home to Battery Park, a 24.72 acre park. From this beautiful green setting, tourists and locals can see the Statue of Liberty. It is also from this place that ferries leave for Liberty Island.
Battery Park is especially known for its history. A Native American people, the Kapsee, lived in the vicinity. During their conquest of this territory in the 17th century, the Dutch named this area “Capske Hoak”, after the first occupants.
Fort Amsterdam was then built on these lands considered strategic for the security of the Dutch camps.
The place was later occupied by the English in 1664 and many artillery pieces were installed there, giving its name to the green space.
Taken over by the Americans in 1783, the fort was razed to make way for a public promenade.
