Battery Park City, located on the southwestern tip of Manhattan, is a quiet urban oasis filled with scenic harbor and water views, pristine streets, walkways, grassy lawns and copious green foliage. With unmatched views of nearby Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, you’ll constantly be reminded of where you are and how far you’ve come. The stylish neighborhood of Tribeca and the historical Financial District are just a short walk or subway ride away.
Although located downtown, Battery Park City is family-oriented with the peace and quiet of an uptown neighborhood. Its calm nature makes it highly desirable to Lower Manhattan workers craving a suburb-like place to live right in the city.
Try the famous bacon cheeseburger at P.J. Clarke’s or slurp oysters at a waterfront restaurant and bar. Inside the shopping, dining and event center Brookfield Place you’ll find Le District, often described the French version of Eataly, as well as trendy food court Hudson Eats.
Battery Park City is home to a staggering 14 parks within its boundaries. The 1.2-mile-long Battery Park Esplanade, spanning the Hudson River, is perfect for a waterside walk, bike or jog. The adjacent Rockefeller Park boasts emerald green grass and bushy trees against a Jersey City backdrop.
