A modern, safe, conveniently located, if just a touch 'sterile' neighborhood, Battery Park City consists almost entirely of mid- to high-rise residential buildings. The esplanade is an excellent feature of the neighborhood, especially if you like jogging.
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-ceilinged prewar apartment). 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, nobody could have imagined people would be living in the Financial District itself. 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; 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.
