Battery Park

Battery Park. The Rising.
~ Balthazar discovering the location of The Rising on the map of New York.

Battery Park is a 25-acre (10 hectare) public park located at the Battery, the southern tip of Manhattan Island in New York City, facing New York Harbor. It was where the final battle between the 3 Merlinean sorcerers and the great Morganian witch Morgana le Fay began in The Sorcerer's Apprentice. However, the actual location of the fight is, in fact, the Bowling Green Park, the oldest public park in New York City with the original 18th-century fence still present.

Maxim Horvath chose this location in New York as the perfect site for The Rising to take place. He ordered Drake Stone to line-up all the satellite dishes on the rooftops of the three buildings around the park precisely.

Dave and Balthazar fought Horvath and an enchanted Charging Bull statue in this park after Horvath set free Morgana (within Veronica due to the Human Fusion Spell) from the Grimhold and allowed her to begin The Rising ritual.
