Many subways go the Battery, since it is in the Financial District; Manhattan also gets really narrow here, and the Battery is close to the Staten Island Ferry and Brooklyn. You can take:
4 & 5 to Bowling Green
R & W to Whitehall St / South Ferry
1 to South Ferry or
J, M, Z to Broad St.
You can take a cab to #1 Broadway, or the intersection of Broadway and Battery Place. There is so much to do in and around the Battery, and it is all within short walking distance to discount shopping, dining, drinking, small, affordable, very good museums that are not crowded, historic sites and churches, architecture, the Staten Island Ferry, the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island Ferry, and the NY Water Taxi.
