Battery Park City
Along the lower western waterfront of the island of Manhattan lies the modern planned community of Battery Park City. It’s tucked away alongside the bustling Financial District, and offers a peaceful oasis directed toward the open water and the Statue of Liberty. The neighborhood boasts a tree-lined promenade, 5 parks, and beautiful sailboats bobbing in the harbor.
Luxury high-rise condo and rental buildings attract both professionals looking for a five-minute walk to work in the Financial District and families looking for plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities. Within the soaring glass Winter Garden, with its dozen imported palm trees, Brookfield Place has been transformed into a retail and public space featuring world-class shopping and dining and a European-style marketplace.
Battery Park City is served by the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, E, J, R and Z subway lines as well as PATH trains through the architecturally lauded brand new Fulton Center . The neighborhood is also served by the NY Waterway Ferry.
