BATTERY PARK CITY
Planned in 1979, Battery Park City is one of Manhattan’s newest neighborhoods. Battery Park City is a mainly residential 92-acre planned community at the southwestern tip of the island of Manhattan, more than one-third of which is parkland. This downtown neighborhood, which is the site of Brookfield Place (formerly the World Financial Center), is predominantly a residential mix of full amenity condos and rental buildings. The waterfront neighborhood is a relaxing haven in Manhattan’s otherwise bustling downtown. The secluded, almost suburban feeling neighborhood boasts scenic views of the Hudson River and The Statue of Liberty.
