Battery Park City is a 92-acre planned community on the southwestern tip of Manhattan. It runs from Vesey St. to Canal St. north to south; then Broadway to the Hudson River east to west.
The area was developed to home the many business professionals who work in the financial district nearby. Using soil, rocks and dredging from nearby construction, Battery Park City emerged from the Hudson River in a land reclamation project. Since then, families have been tumbling in to enjoy the scenic views, fresh air and spaciousness of the neighborhood. Luxury residential, commercial and retail buildings define the carefully laid out neighborhood. Among these destinations are the World Financial Center and North Cove, a large yacht harbor.
Battery Park City is a forward-looking neighborhood with numerous LEED green certified buildings and parks along the river where residents can be found jogging, playing mini golf or taking sailing lessons. Once part of the Hudson River, Battery Park City is now a residential oasis for those who can afford the lifestyle.
