A modern, safe, conveniently located, if just a touch artificial neighborhood (in the sense that it lacks the organic urban fabric of the rest of Manhattan), Battery Park City consists almost entirely of mid- to high-rise residential buildings. The Hudson River esplanade is an excellent feature of the neighborhood, especially if you like jogging, biking, or other outdoor activities.
Since Battery Park City is a still relatively new neighborhood, pretty much all of its buildings have been constructed in the last few decades. This makes for a somewhat more uniform look of the buildings and more standardized features of the apartments (don't come here looking for a high-ceiling prewar gems). The typical apartment layouts here are one- and two- bedrooms.

Battery Park City was created in the late 1970s, at the time when the (original) World Trade Center was being built. The area was planned from the beginning as a residential community for Financial District workers (in that era, the idea that people could be living in the Financial District itself seemed absurd). At least one third of BPC's land mass was actually put in artificially: it consists of the soil dug up from the World Trade Center complex's foundation.
Due to its location, the neighborhood was seriously affected by the September 11th tragedy and most of its residential buildings had to be evacuated. In the years that followed, however, a thorough clean-up and rebuilding effort re-established Battery Park City as a safe and attractive neighborhood.
