Battery Place was a station on the long-demolished Ninth Avenue and Sixth Avenue elevated train lines in New York City. It was located at the southern terminus of Greenwich Street at the north end of Battery Park.

The station had two tracks and two side platforms. It was served by trains from the IRT Sixth Avenue Line and IRT Ninth Avenue Line. It closed on June 11, 1940, though Sixth Avenue line trains stopped serving it when that el line was closed in 1938.

One block north of the station, the Sixth Avenue El diverged to the east at Morris Street.

The next southbound stop was South Ferry. The next northbound stop was Rector Street for Ninth Avenue Line trains, Rector Street for local Sixth Avenue Line trains, and Park Place for Sixth Avenue Line express trains.
