Neighborhood Profile

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- and high-rise residential buildings. The Hudson River esplanade is a prominent feature here, which can be a serious draw – if you like jogging, biking, or engaging in similar outdoor activities. On the negative side, however, high-trafficked, multi-lane West Street separates Battery Park City from Tribeca and the Financial District, and prevents this neighborhood from becoming a bona fide part of Downtown Manhattan.

Buildings in the Neighborhood

Battery Park City is a still relatively new neighborhood: most of its buildings were built in the last few decades. This gives them a somewhat uniform look and even apartments themselves are more or less standardized (don't come here looking for high-ceilinged prewar-style residences, for example). One- and two- bedrooms are most typical as layouts.

Historical Notes

Battery Park City was created in the late 1970s, when the original World Trade Center was being built. In fact, at least one third of BPC's land mass was put in artificially: it consists of the soil dug up from the World Trade Center complex's foundation. The area was planned from the start as a residential community for those working in the Financial District. (It should perhaps be added that back in those days, the idea that people could be living in the Financial District itself seemed absurd.)

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, a thorough clean-up effort succeeded in reestablishing Battery Park City as a safe and attractive neighborhood.
