The park was created in 1968 by Pittsburgh-based United States Steel, after the property owners negotiated its creation with city officials. It was named Liberty Plaza Park because it was situated one block south of One Liberty Plaza. The park's northwest corner is across the street from Four World Trade Center. It has been popular with local tourists and financial workers.
The park was heavily damaged in the September 11 attacks and subsequent recovery efforts of 2001. The plaza was later used as the site of several events commemorating the anniversary of the attacks. After renovations in 2006, the park was renamed by its current owners, Brookfield Office Properties, after company chairman John Zuccotti. In 2011, the plaza became the site of the Occupy Wall Street protest camp, during which activists occupied the plaza and used it as a staging ground for their protests throughout the Financial District.

Beautiful little park to get a moment's reprieve from the hustle and bustle that is the financial district. There are a ton of street vendors right nearby as well so if you're looking for a quick bite to eat your options certainly are a plenty. Plenty of places to sit and relax and just take in the nearby sites.
Calling it a park is a bit of a stretch. It’s best know for the Occupy Wall St protest. Average food trucks can be found daily. There are tables and benches for sidewalk scenery watching, but there’s no grass or playground of any sort. Walk across the street to the World Trade Center or south to Wall St.
